Fire Escape

starlight during the day

I hear her call

moonlight shines down

I see her fall

escape down a fire escape

to hide from them all

embrace dreams

to hold a candle too

reposition life

to a standstill

beckon forth from within

thirst for knowledge

the key to begin

when the sun fades

when the sun fades

signals the end of day

night makes an appearance

the shapes of the clouds disappear

replaced by the stars

the light of the moon across the sky

tells of stories of the sun

as the trees sway in the breeze

the animals come out to hunt

their shadows dancing across the ground

pursuing the right to dominate the nightlife
