Two in morning

it's time to face my night´s remains

shadows combine with the light coming up from the avenue into the room where I am seated

sometimes one or another noise passes through double-glasses windows

this is my sound-proofing solitude

there is no background music



there will stay the melody of silence

rocking my night's remains.
