Painting at night

Processed with VSCOcam with x2 preset

Another night,
neither welcome
nor unexpected,
descends, silence
in tow, threatening
but with little
consequence,
a toothless beast
in a hide of fear
slipping into
forgotten corners
and under
irrelevant tables.
Unaware, you don
the cape of sleep,
a mantled treaty
granting a search
unhindered by
busy eyes and
unspoken questions,
a new line drawn
and finalized
by brush and pen,
the portrait
coming together
neither as planned
nor unwelcome.
