The World Vanished
By Jennifer Kiley
12th Oct. 2015

Most places
now were hard
Light the shadow
across the moon

Higher I became –
the world vanished
Whispers of dreams
Enchanted the presence

An aesthetic desire
Face the last wonder
Light the way

This dream seemed
so close
Could grasp it

Somewhere
The dark night
Recedes before us
Eluded

Stretch farther
Beat back the past
