A Quick Poetry Break *3*

We walked alone, in silence,
My friend and I.
Through the town we were born in,
Through the place we would die.

Leaves crunched under our feet.
Swaddled against the blistering cold
Of the long, dreary night,
We walked.

Darkness, stretching on for miles,
Our silence, unbreakable.
I shivered.

My friend, shuttered.
And yet, we continued to walk.
Finding comfort in the solace,
A comfortableness in the vacant darkness.

A dog barks in the distance,
Car headlights loom brightly,
And we continue to walk,
In silence.
