~When Darkness Falls~

alt

As black veil cover the sky, I retired.

As you prepare for slumber, awake, I remained.

This night, outside your infinitesimal igloo, oblivion lingered.

Silver moon and golden stars, locked away and concealed.

In vicinity’s of gloom, clandestine shapes loitered.

*
Slowly, your dreams became existent.

Gradually, your nightmares announced their presence.

Hastily, clammy sweat dripped down your forehead.

Intently, unseen things, watched your every flinch.

Fastidiously, to the vehement beat of your heart, they danced.

*
As atrocious beasts, heaved your imagination.

To imperceptible routes, your eyes shifted.

Beneath your bed, things trembled.

Behind your spherical walls, voices cried.

Inside your chest, your heart fluttered.

Within your throat, your voice quivered.

All around you, silhouettes, whirled and stirred.

*
Listen keenly, can you hear my feeble call?

Though my glimmer could end your tremor,

Next to you, I lay unused and worthless.

For me, your trembling hand reached out.

Go ahead, utilize me.

Your cold fingers seized the string, as I felt myself ablaze.

Proudly, I filled your globular home of blinding light.

Successfully, with my warming beam, I steered away your nightmares.

Tremors now absconded your thoughts, as blissful dreams took their place.

Soothing thou senses, as deeply, you respired.

Inspiring thou imagination, as serenely, you laid.

*

Nevertheless, as dreams started to flood your thoughts, you contemplated.

Vexed and ambivalent, in your bed, you lay.

Upon elimination of my luminosity, would nightmare execute revenge?

*
Now, your mind is obstinate.

Unchangeable and persistent, you elected your vote.

Now, you’re sound asleep.

Impervious and defended, you dream.

Now, my glow shields you from impairment of dreams.

Unmovable and benevolent, I guard you.
