I Left The Window Open And In Came The Night

I left the window open
In came the night
The day escaped my clutches
Flew away with light

  1. Hi, Frank, your poems really light up my world. I am an Chinese college student. Last week we learned a new phrase “a flash in the pan”, here’s a poem I composed titled with that. Hope you like it and maybe you ca give me some comments. Thank you!

    I wish I were a slice of light,
    Upon your lip,
    Stamp my sojourn until late night.

    Across your face spread a sign,
    Beneath your lie,
    Left my steps over skyline.

    When Luna in a dress of starry perfume,
    In saecula saeculorum,
    Ignored the elephant in the room.

    All that flushed the best-laid plan,
    No more than,
    Dwelt within a flash in the pan.
