The End of Autumn

Depression mixes well with 4:45 sunsets of deeper Cobalt or Royal.
The lights in my house get dimmer
a dismal struggle between low and dead.
The veins in my eyes have become, redder,
having now tried to understand the radiating pink buzz living
in the neon street sign.

Artistically, beautiful,sir. I find the shorter days to be sleep-inducing personally. I hope it doesn't get you down for long.

Hot, handsome and a most excellent poet to boot. Some people have everything. :)

If that's the real choice, may low win. I think there are others. :)
