Embrace Of the Night

The sun forces the day
with relentless cheer
into reluctant eyes
heralding the start
of frantic seconds
rushed minutes
of cramming into them
more than the hours
can hold

Chaotic streets
blaring horns
frenzied people
on crowded trains
leaving nerves jangled

Squeezed in
an invisible vise
of demands
Senses assailed
by a cascade
of requests
Stress clamps
iron fists around
a beleaguered mind

longing to escape
into the unquestioning
embrace of the night
