Nightscape with Rainfall – poem

Nightscape with Rainfall
The rudiments of fear
trace each step;
the hollow echoes
dampered by the rain.

Haunted by absences –
the lack
of any company
to take the chill away –

a sudden surge
of cowardice betrays
his vanity.

The rudiments of fear
trace each step,
the hollow echo
silenced by the rain.

The last bedraggled remnant
of false pride
lies submerged
in his timid haste.
