I totally forgot to post this poem yesterday. Whoops.
Anyways, I had a 6 hour power outage yesterday evening/night so I decided to write about it.
I look up and see my surroundings shrouded in darkness
The only brightness comes from the city,
Which, at this moment, feels too far to reach
Twinkling lights in office buildings and street lamps,
I stare outside as candles emit a faint glow around the room.
It slowly gets brighter outside
And darker in here
