A Moment Longer

Pz-avatarby Jack River09 Feb 2017

Blessèd light 
Stay a moment longer ‘neath the cloud
Why take such sycophantic flight
To please the growing crowd 
Of people eager at their panes 
Of glass beneath the brick 
To see the sacred pass of flames 
That plays the sky as but a trick?

Stay a moment longer, to please the miserable 
Dance and soak the wanton wicked with visceral 
Play among the stars that shine so far beyond your eye 
And elongate the darkness which to me seems all but nigh 

Please, they 
Won't know 
Don't go
