Fear of the Night

Blackness flies with wings of a dead fire
Blackness dies in the core of the dawn
But is not forgotten
Because no matter how glorious the light
No matter how profound and bright
Blackness will sing its renaissance in the last breath of dusk
In the last drop of the bleeding horizon
And you know it
And you fear it
Because crawling within the depths of blackness is a creature of uncertainty
A ghost of the unknown
And it howls from the crevices of blackness
The blackness loves to watch as you cower and cry and run
It laughs at your fright
Cackles at your tremor of trepidation 
But it's nothing but a play to stray you afar
Because even though you fear the blackness
The blackness fears you

    Can I marry this poem? It's brilliant!!! The personification of the blackness really brings the dark enmity to life, thus the manifestation of pure awesomeness is at hand. Thanks for posting and keep up the excellent work. (thanks for the nice comment too) Always, Laura

    Great write Kyle!! Thanks for sharing. Fear not the blackness - for the light is soon to follow. Check out the "Because" at the start of lines 10 and 17 - a little finger dislexia on the keyboard, perhaps. Thanks for sharing your poetry - keep up the good work.
