~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
