poetry

The Dark of Night

As the rays of the sun, lay down for the night,
We rise from the gloom, away from day’s hateful light,
We laugh and we love, we are children of the moon,
We revel in darkness, in shadow and in doom,
We seek in the night, the peace that we crave,
We find it in twilight, as we escape from the grave,
Watch us, envy us, but take care what you find,
We are with you always…in the dark of your mind…
