WHERE HAS THE NIGHT GONE? by Dexter R. Jones

Mystery misunderstood.
She was chased away by the harsh realities of the day.
No one fervently peeked around the corners of the sky awaiting her return.
But she returned.
Too often She heard the hopes and declarations of good Mornings.
But never enough did any ever wish of her a good Night.
Still She remained a Good Knight
To an impossible Black sky.

ABANDON by Dex R. Jones

I waited here for you until I questioned my own presence.
Virtue chips away from patience
like paint from walls
I have become a ghost that haunts this place.
But I have made this story my home
Nary a record ever skip.
Nor a song absent from my heart.
I still smile.
I still know joy.
I find myself tickled by the thought of you.
Laughing when nothing is funny.
Only now, I find solace in dancing on my own
with reckless abandon.
