Dusk to Dawn

By: Abisola F.

I smelled the time ticking,

Heard the world spinning

It’s coming near

I smelled the tears brimming,

Heard the dark coming

I could touch the fear

I smelled the cries coming,

Heard the walls crumbling

Saw that single tear

I felt the sky fading

Heard the joy passing

But it’s enough to bear

All around the joy was sinking

All around the fear was rising

I can smell it all around me

From dusk to dawn

Then it is gone
