Night Refuge

Night Refuge


Flying by the window of time,

seeking truth. Lurking in hidden

passages, susurrations follow.

Apparitions haunt the shadows

of the imagination.


There are no more wishes,

the stars have all gone dark.

Pain swallowed the night.


So, escape the day.

Flee for the night, never look

back. Run towards the darkness

that harbors the silence.


The deep ache of quiet that

floods the senses, battling turmoil

with calm. Future becomes past as

infinity dangles just out of reach.


Quote my words today,

For tomorrow does not exist!
