The Pain of Night

Caving tears in the moonlight's shadow. 
I wash the pain of yesterday's wound. 
A shade of happiness drifts in the darkness. 
I start to breathe in a crowded room. 
I run fast, 'til I reach the horizon. 
Eyes glare at me, I have nowhere to go. 
I screw up all the pain this heart kept. 
I'm giving up, I'm tired to blend. 
Kneeling down, I summon love. 
I searched for love myself, and I failed. 
I am broken, impaired, can barely bend. 
Bring me to life, where love exists. 
Lay down my soul barely naked. 
Grasp the thinnest air, I'm suffocating. 
Sooner or later the pain will be gone. 
The night will soon meet the sunshine.

Gravity's force moving me forward.. Caused me to see you laying there.. Struggling for a breath of life.. Your wrenched soul was almost bare.. I knelt down in the darkness.. Moon's glow brought little grace.. Teardrops that carried heartache.. Were dripping down from your face.. I cradled you softly in my arms.. Whispered, "Love would come in time.. In the morning you'll find Spring.. You'll know I'm your sweet sunshine!"
