all the night

19

I tried to capture
the night
but
it proved itself
elusive

slipped through
my fingers

evaded my grasp

concealed itself
in darkness

stayed quiet
until I wearied

I tried t
to capture
the night

I looked
everywhere

found nothing
that could touch
or tag

found nothing
but a stirring of the air

I tried hard
but all I got
was darkness
