  • Night’s gentle cloak surrounds
    A fearful mortal’s angst,
    allowing the dark to
    cradle his aching soul.

    Night’s gentle cloak envelops
    Him as he stalks sleepless
    Round the house, trying to
    Ease his battered brain’s thoughts

    Night’s gentle cloak cannot
    Ease his troubled mind so
    He drinks one more glass of
    wine, to blur aching guilt
    of youthful follies past

    Night’s gentle cloak allows
    him to shout at the moon as
    he waits desperately for
    dawn’s hope and healing light.
