Undertones

 

Staying alive

is the only trial

of the night.

The judges wilt

in the first rays

of morning’s light.

Daytime,

all we want

is to live.

Find the words

to tell the world

what it is

to be here.

Simple things

mean so much.

Complicated messages

corrupted

in the translation.

It’s not

very hard to say “Hello”

in a thousand languages.

Pierce the world,

listen to the undertones.

This is it,

the point of contact.

Let’s be clear,

we are doing something

incredible right now,

like telepathy.

Reaching out

to you

through the darkness.

When we touch,

it’s something special.

There may be

no barriers at all,

because night and day

only exist

here.
