Into the Night

Into the Night

Into the Night
 

 
In the midst of the sacred moonlight,
I embrace the dissolution of the night.
Immersed within darkness, I wish you were here,
Consumed by madness, my mind I fear.
 
In the strange tides, which I call my dreams,
I hold you so close, it feels obscene.
Like a banshee lost in the night,
I call your name into the night.
 
Into the Night
 
Cold desert winds infiltrate my bed.
As strange cruel thoughts run through my head,
I’m failing to find salvation, within your transparent gaze,
You harbour of misfortune, and I’ve seen better days.
 
And so, I walk
Into the Night
Into the Night

Arresting imagery...with an instinctive feel for poetic structure and command of language.

Well done.

Thanks Jason. I appreciate your kind words. I like your poem Theresienstadt. In particular the lines "Of voices lost forever on the tide, A song is borne on which their spirits glide." Very powerful concluding words.
