The world is lit in the dimming rays of sunset,
and the bright lights of the fairy-tail street lights.
Pine needles under the pools of light,
shine with a vibrant youthful look.
The leaves crunch underfoot as people trample
over them in a rush to go places.
A chorus of barks echos down the
quiet, lonely deserted roads, a sign that life is still here.
Lights shine in the windows of the silent houses,
the only signs that people are actually home.
The echos of a basketball bouncing,
leaves the heart beating in hopes of seeing another.
Dark gray pocketed pavement stretches out in front
of a lonely walker, with only a dog for company.
The clouds above her head, storm like,
threatening to pour rain down upon her head at any moment.
Still she walks on, unfazed by the color and threats of the clouds.
Her black and white Husky trots alongside her,
his tongue hanging out of his mouth as he breathes heavily.
The sounds of her dog tags hanging from her neck and
the clinking of his dog tags hanging from his collar
make a song so light and bell like.
The girl smiles and bends down to pet her dog,
as he sits obediently, licking her face in a friendly kiss.
She giggled and pushed him away slightly as
she rises to her feet once more, brushing off the knees of her jeans.
She takes his leash back in both hands and whistles,
and he trots once more beside her as she
continues to walk down the lonely road.
She takes the time to look up at the sky, and take in the clouds.
As she did the first few raindrops fall upon her face.
Rubbing her face as looked up the slight hill she stood by,
where the house was located, looming high above their heads.
She loosened her grip on her dog’s leash
as she slowly hiked up the slight steep hill,
to the brick steps of the front porch.
She looked back once more at the sunset lights,
and the fairy-tail like street lamps,
that lit her path that night.
