Ben Paynter

(Midwest)

a night spent unalone


leave me to my silence
and I will leave you to your laugh
leave me to my darkness
and I will leave you to your past
or let the silence take you
and let me share your smile
while the darkness is around us
if only for awhile.

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,

Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
