Inevitably Dark

I was looking at the night and thinking of many emotions that it could play, on what you believe and where you are,, enjoy!?

Darkness is inevitable,
shrouding us with it,
it marks the end of a day,
creating a peacful end,
beautiful stars now visible,
and a glorious full moon on show.

Darkness can scare people,
the not knowing what's where,
knowing that anything as possible,
like your concealed from reality,
but with darkness making you blind,
you are unable to know.

Darkness is magical,
all manner of animals can now be heard,
small insects, to the hooting from owls,
scurrying mice, and nighttime cats,
the gentle swoosh of the wind,
and the howling dogs.

Darkness is beautiful,
the feeling of being able to see,
yet only through touch, sound, smell,
and more importantly through the heart,
and through the soul, feeling it while it's raw,
The strength it can bring to emotion leaves me in awe.
