Lights Out

There were people inside when the lights went out.
The roads emptied, the world was still.
Starlight whispered in the night—
A million worlds in the depths of nothing
Where we were never meant to go.
Find the way through, come back with light
For those huddled in the darkness
Who wait for the return of sweet air.
Cold breath that passed through all life
Until breathing ceased.
There were people inside when the lights went out.
