The Visitors


They usually arrive,
one by one,
everyone thinks
they'll be
such fun.
They always leave
in the same way,
late at night,
or just before
break of day,
to travel back
where they
came from.
While here,
they often
say our names
in the dark,
drink our drinks,
leave their mark.
Only in dreams
we dream at dawn,
do we sometimes see
how far they've gone.
