The Night

It witnesses my pain
It masks my tears
Watches blood flow from my vein
Implants my brain with fears

It chases away the light
I want to escape
It gives me quite a fright
This feels like a date rape

It lays me down
With my tears
Me, it tries to drown

It is my superior
It chooses my fate
I am inferior
It has the right bait

I'll never be lonely
With it by my side
It saves my life, if only
My happiness it will override

    The night is the time where my thoughts take over and my fears and hopes come alive. Dreams help us cope with daily life. Sleep on the other hand can take away pain and make us not feel everyday life. Well said in this poem. love phyl
