The night
Sky as dark as pitch
It swallows me
Fighting the urge to scream with fright
It swallows me
Running in circles, searching for light
It swallows me
Hearing noises so close by
It swallows me
I am scared out of my mind
It swallows me
 
But when day breaks though, I should be relieved
I soak up all the sun
For sun is light, and happiness
In a world where there is none
As the day grows old
And dusk arrives
I think of all the lives
That ended today
And will end tonight
Because the sun did not stay
 
Again I stand here in the night
With sky, dark as pitch
It swallows me again, as it did, not so long before
I no longer feel the urge to scream
I stay in one place
It continues to swallow me
I still hear noises, but I don’t mind
I am no longer frightened
For night is day without the light
Without the sky so brightened
