  Three crows fly across my path.
They fly toward a building.
As one perches atop the spire,
it caws at the waning light.
A lone brown leaf tumbles, topples,
in front of me.
It falls to the ground, scraping
and stopping as it hits the curb.
Headlights rush by, bright ghosts
screaming in the night.
I daydream about a future
that will never come,
married to the dream of a love
I will never find.
I am fluent in silence,
and I am alone.

  I like the feel of this poem, Aeon.
I was initially more attracted to the title than the poem but then I decided to read it again...it made me fairly sad.

  I have been playing with exactly the same images for a while as well, but you beat me to it :o)


Nice work.

  I like the title as well. It was gonna be a band name but I decided to use it for the title of this poem.

  It's good, it conjures up the loneliness really well

  it'd have to be an emo band though.

you know the crow thing, right?

1 for sorrow
2 for joy
3 for girls
4 for boys
5 for silver
6 for gold and
7 for a secret never to be told.
