Poetry Corner – The Night

The Night

I don’t want this night to end
Floating in oblivion
I want night to last forever
Why must we wake up?

It’s as if the night is there
just to tease us
Only a short reprieve
from torturous day

Dreams blind us from what awaits when we wake

I want this night to stay
and comfort me in its eternal blackness
The sun’s beams like a monster
peeking from behind the closet door

Spend day waiting
for night’s warm embrace
Bringing comfort and protection
from all that exists
Anonymity at last

But don’t let it fool you
Night is day disguised
Unveiling its true identity
come dusk

Falling asleep
into an inviting void
A dimension beyond our four
Together we go interstellar

The night doesn’t care
about your successes
or failures

Good night

Sleep tight

Is it the will of a lion that fortifies us with bravery?

Or do humans infuse the animal with heart?

I have peered into his center, an adventurer with a penchant for poetics,

peeling layers, shedding skins, existing in the of, 

novelty: lustrous & rich

with shifts in perspective & prospect,

his eyes speak out melodies;

of dreams transcending body;

contained by the knowledge in sensuality, mind leans toward,

a vivid endorsement for connection
