the darkness cheers you on


This is the first night of your solitude.

The window is closed;

You are on one side of the glass,

And the strength and power of night

Is on the other. The darkness cheers you on,

Like cheerleaders at a basketball game.

Someone has passed the ball to you,

And you were not expecting it.

You are moving quickly down-court,

Watched by the eyes of a thousand strangers,

And yet alone.
