fading glow

The lights went out when she left town
Good thing the moon was out in full
And plenty of candles to burn
During this new dark age

I don’t know whether to be more worried
Of the effect she already has at such a distance
Or of what will happen when she gets back
And the power and lights return
To show me what a mess i’ve made
In the short time i’ve been on my own
Alone with myself and no one else
But a cat and the fading glow
Of electronic gadgets and a phone
