Darkened Night - Poem by Rachel Branscombe

In darkened night I see the stars
Shining against the sky
Golden buttons against a sea of black and blue

In darkened night I see the moon
Sitting boldly in the sky
Its white beams shining brightly

In darkened night I feel the wind
I feel its cold fingers
I feel its breath down my neck
And when I'm alone it sends shivers down my back

This darkened night that I call home
Where nighttime is my friend
Where hidden secrets rule
This darkened night with sunlight coming soon


Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this poem a while ago after experiencing a very strange dream where the world was full of darkness.
