The Gruesome Night

The night was over
The rain made sure of it
The moon didn’t show
Cats cowered under cars
Men wept in tents
The bloated river washed away
The path of a fox

The night was final
Lingering eternal
As if the rays of dawn
Would never come
To burn the dark away

The gruesome
The endless
The pitiful night falls
To a kiss from the sun

With each embrace, she wears away
His velvet guard that stole the day
With each caress of Golden light
The sun erodes the shores of night
