SingpoWriMo 2016 Day #20

SingPoWriMo 2016 Day #20

It's getting harder to write when you are not getting enough sleep.

what have i got myself into?

4 a.m. sunday morning

sometimes nights are like that
awash with shadows
the rain calling your name

the night grumbles and growls
nine floors below
blue red strobe lights, doors slam

the rain is falling, scattering
like silver needles
in the glow of streetlights

voices, muffled by the wind
a woman's plead
shrill, and angry words

take the brawl somewhere nabeh!

or maybe the rain is already
washing the blood
off the cold asphalt.
