Dark Night


Night dark but your lies were darker

Night cruel but your love more crueler

Night all alone yet better than your absent minded with me

Night was the time i gave my whole to you

Night was the time you slapped my face

Night was the day you pushed me to the door.

Night was the time you abused me

Night was the time you slit my tongue

Night was the time the moon refuses to smile at us

Night was the time i lost you

Night was the time you left me all in the rain

Night was the time i cry you a river

Night under the tree you promise me your undying love

Night was the time you bid me goodbye

Night was the time you threw a stone into my glassy world.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
