Another shade Of Reality

Hold tight the night Embrace the dark Lit only by Luna’s Lambent spark Keep tight the lids So not to see A ray of light Not meant to be For in the dark Dreams can be Another shade of Reality And a world as bright Without the light Of velvet black Dark things to see Enjoy the world Of ebon deep Dreams of wonder In your sleep Push away the day That world so bright Embrace the dark Hold tight the night

    the words are tactile, David. i thought of dreams at night but also those long term ones we hold. Nicely done.

    I enjoyed your sensually worded poem...clinging to the night and to sleep and to dreamy images is a luxury we can and should all enjoy...
