Lounge (press)

The darkness
changes
things.
It's like a mask has been lifted
And everything is naked
still
honest.
The sun, that which makes us
happy and false
by force
retires and leaves us
to be ourselves

Somebody breathes and makes
waves in the air of the night.

The day, bright and cheery
finally faded,
leaves the truth
exposed.

Oooh, I like this one. The only word I tripped over was "be" in the line

be happy and false

Is there another way to say it? (You know me and linking verbs...)

:)

Well, I had translated it from spanish and just didn't post the original Spanish version, so some of it doesn't really make sense ;)

I really like this... You should definatly post the original Spanish version though, because I'm sure it's just as amazing as this one!
