The Night Has A Thousand Eyes

The mind has a thousand eyes,         And the heart but one; Yet the light of a whole life dies         When love is done.                 – Francis William Bourdillon

How Many Chances???

As I awoke half startled, face still screwed up in a frown. I lay there quietly, wondering what in the world had just gone down. I raised myself up slowly, cautious of what I might find. Could that have been the sound of Gabriels trumpet, the end of all mankind. It was so dark,
