Refuge of Night

Poetry By: Ousma
Poetry



A thoughtful poem... written after spending some time outside at night. I needed some time to ponder over the changing state of my heart...

There are no stars tonight

To help me see

They've left me on my own

To face this inner plight

Lost, I lay in the grass

Enjoying my quiet solitude

Tomorrow I'll be hit with cold water

It seems I'm growing up too fast

A lonely lamppost's light sent

To my figure, drawing a long shadow

I see my sins hiding in its black void

But life's too short to worry about repent

I sit at the foot of a tree

A kind presence to ease my troubled heart

It will listen, even when I don't speak

Someone to help set my mind free

In this night, I contemplate alone

The heavy silence surrounds me

Yet so loud with wisdom

Seeping into my every bone

Why am I here, hiding from the day?

You fill my mind so I can hardly think

I'm falling for you more every moment

And I need the night to tell me it's okay.

There are no stars tonight

To help me see

They've left me on my own

To face this inner plight
