after dusk, before dawn
by Peiran Liu


It was a moment both familiar and unfamiliar,
as if caught between déjà vu and the unknown.

As the last rays of the sun faded away,
yet the stars had not yet begun to twinkle,

the earth was enveloped in a profound darkness,
as if the whole world had fallen into silence.

In this blurred moment,
memories and hopes intertwined.

Recalling the bustling and clamor of twilight,
reminiscing about the ups and downs of life.

The laughter and tears experienced,
those moments that once broke hearts surged like waves in the mind.
