Dark Night


All round and round Darkness all nite Days of sorrow Days of broken dreams Broken clouds, sorrowfull thought Sadness, weakness and lonelynes rumble Days of scattered dreams Days of unpleasant nightmare Hours of pain and sadness Been captured in the embrace of the dark Years of uncovered mystery of darkness Been loved, been love by alone and darkness My sorrow i could not awake What mystery that binds me in the dark Hallow heart at night Dark, sorrow, sadness and lonelynes Are all we can hear at door step With every step Approaching a different catastrophe All prepared for the worst With a different hope in the dark Thick clouds of different darkness Days of lost dreams Been starved with expectataion, over and over again We hallow out in the dark

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
