Grows The Night

Grows The Night Grows the night, hours of slow sweeping pains Moonlit views gifting no true delight, A vassal of sad sorrows and woes I seeking life's relief Fate denies Grows the night, shadows dancing about Creaking doors and pitiless low moans Vestiges of weeping, shattered hearts Trepidation reigns as, grows the night. 6/10/2020 Repeat The Phrase Poetry Contest Verse poetry form only.
