Nightfall

Gold air turns to dusk
still clothed in warm light
with colours of the rainbow
floating through an autumn sky

As the night comes on
voices echo in my head
our skinny love wakes my soul
it leaves me bare

Stars hang in the winter sky
like our love in my heart
but as the night falls
I realise it’s time for a new start

Was it just summer love, gone by nightfall?
