The Change

I view the world blankly.

A film of salted water on my eyes.

The world has changed.

The world has changed in just one day.

–   A sense of doom has set in.

–   A pall of gloom has settled.


The rain which seemed beautiful yesterday,

Today seems dreary.

The trees, the flowers, the birds all weary.

A layer of dust on every life.

A mood of decay in every place.


Hope has turned despair,

Affection annoyance,

Initiative tiredness.

A smile, a tear.


A few words,

spoken in the dead of night

Have changed the world

…My world.
