Late One Night
by Dan Simpson

Late one night in a cold candles glow
at the table I sat down to write
To my old brother Will who lived over the hill
whose last meeting had ended with spite
As my pen hit the page I was still gripped with rage
at the words that were long ago spoke
But I stirred up my nerve to make amends with my words
and with a trembling hand I wrote

Just then at the door sudden footsteps on the boards
drew my mind in its ragged state
And the old familiar hat that I spied through the slats
flashed my heart into a blinding rage
The shock was so great that I still can’t recall
the events that then transpired
My boots hit the floor and I sprang for the door
my eyes red muscles taut like wire

I found myself outside in the wind and the rain
my body shivering from strain
I don’t know where the lost moments go,
but I sure wish they could be reclaimed

As I slowly returned I felt the ache in my hands
saw the crimson stains on my skin
And the rain took for worse and the wind blew a curse
that punctuated my terrible sin
As l looked to the ground my heart started to pound
and I recognized the eyes that stared
Blankly back at me now lifeless and free
of the cursed life I heretofore bear

I found myself outside in the wind and the rain
my mind spinning with rage
I don’t know where the lost moments go,
but I sure wish they could be reclaimed
