Still Of The Night

 

In the still of the night

There is nothing but

a hand

that reaches out

and slaps you down.

The silence of the night

Is shattered by

your gasps

that try to escape

the ever tightening noose.

The darkness of the night

Deepens to black

an endless pit

of deep despair

of abandoned hope.

The sleepless night forever lasts

To increase the torment

an epiphany

of hopes and dreams

turned sour.

The end of the night

The start of a day

I just

can't face it

so I'll turn away.
