via Daily Prompt: Succumb

The darkness leaches into the sky

The noise filters outwards

It dissipates with the busyness

Of a suburban street at night.

Dishes clank and dinner smells devine,

No leftovers tonight.

TV mutters away but is anyone really watching?

Teenagers entertain themselves

On endless computer games

As I succumb to the night.
