Memories of Midnight

a poem by Prabindh

Looking into the darkness still
Seeking for those familiar sounds
In this unknown land
Oceans apart but memories linger
Memories of midnight
When sounds of travel
Mingle with conversations
Cries of toddlers, wandering birds
And dripping pipes end it all.
Has all civilisation ended I wonder
As only the sound of silence I hear
And memories fade away
The memories of midnight
As I move into the depths of sleep.
