The Night ~

Inside,  
Hollow, but one,  
One thing,  

A lie kept untold,  
It keeps,  
 
The cripple of,  
Silent tears.  
 
Inside,  
The shadows of,  
Corner walls,  
 
Subtle at the,  
Edge of sleep,  
 
Whispering clouds,  
Above...  
 
Waiting.  
 
The eyes,  
Hazy with mist,  
Staring,  
 
At hands with,  
Cold palms.  
 
Nervous,  
Lonely alone,  
Frozen to stone.  
 
The night…  
 
And I,  
Couldn’t see that time,  
Had gone...  
 
Cunning steps waltz  
Through the hall.  
 
The sweetened,  
Blissful,  
Smoky dream.  
 
The paintbrush,  
Bleeds water,  
On white.  
 
The cup,  
That seems,  
Empty outside,  
 
Swirling with,  
Light breathless sighs.  
 
This hide and seek of,  
The night.  
 
One tries,  
To call for a signal  
Of life,  
 
But darkness swallows  
Their fall.  
 
Useless worries  
Pour in.  
 
Letters too thin,  
To the touch.  
 
Puzzle pieces,  
Scattered stars.  
 
Puppets play,  
Tricks of the mind.  
 
My shadow friends of,  
The night…  
 
This lie,  
Lighter than air,  
It’ll be.  
 
The mystery  
Won’t,  
Reveal.  
 
Found peace,  
Beneath the sea.  
 
This life,  
You’ve treated me kind,  
 
You see,  
Suffering comes  
To end.  
 
The last stroke,  
Of,  
The night.  
 
~~
