THE NIGHT AND ME

THE NIGHT AND ME

Alone I sit under a starlit sky
My thoughts all drifting afar 
Wondering of life on planets nearby 
And wishing that I could fly 

The sky is vast and stars uncountable 
Who can call them by name
And with all of men's wisdom and knowledge 
The heavens is revered and feared 

Draw a little closer O distant star
Let your light penetrate my soul 
Take me away from this corrupted world 
Take me before I am stoned

I despised the air I breathe among men
Its toxicity dries out my bones 
Surrounded by habitual liars and thieves 
I was forced to leave my home

Now here I sit alone in the dark
Surrounded by billions of eyes 
But your silence and beauty 
Overwhelms my heart 
To such I have no reply.
