~Cloak of Darkness ~


 


Under cover of darkness


in the encompassing cocoon of night


 you stand naked as all subterfuge is shed


 to face the truths that come to light


~~


For those who are in love


the night holds passion and romance


when the air is saturated with magic


and lovers complete their erotic dance


~~


 The lonely run to hide


 their fears and pain in sleep


knowing when the morning comes


their illusions they will try to keep


~~


When your love and dreams fail


nighttime only magnifies the loss


long hours when sleep cleverly evades


as you keep reliving the emotional cost


~~


If death cuts short a loved ones life


the night allows fanciful escapes


and we keep searching for them in dreams


as night covers us like a cape


~~


For some the night is soft and warm


for others itís lonely and long


as the night embraces each of us


we move to the rhythms of our own songs


~~
