Poetry: The Analysis of Night

some say darkness is a poem
woven into fractal skies
reflecting absence of tomorrow
in the hopeless, desperate cries
but I think night is something warmer
than the drum of grim defeat:
deconstruct the hallowed nightmares
find the light beneath the sheet

 

some say day is God descending
hands uncovering all delight
subduing in the grayest shadows
all the horrors born in night
but I think day is false as copper
stained as kingdoms left to rot:
deconstruct the veil of wonder
find the blessed in darkest lots
