The last vestiges of light fade
Twilight dawns, and darkness reigns

The onset of the gloaming
Limns the heavy-laden sky

A preternatural gloom pervades the dusk
Mantle of darkness chasing the light

The ominous epiphany of shadow
Besieges the dwindling day

A satiny veil of dimness
Extinguishing the faintest glimmer

The apocalypse of darkness
Caresses an expectant world
