The Night

Written by: Lily Mayfield

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
