I am the silence and darkness of the night Poem by Debra Bunt

The night is thick with darkness
I stand and hear the silence
No one can see the pain I am in
Yet, the morning will still come in

The night is thick with silence
I stand in nothing but darkness
No one can see the emotional pain I am in
Yet, the morning will still come in

As I stand with pain throughout my body
I want to ask why me?
Yet I know I do have the answer
So I stand and just let it be

I stand with tears on my face
For pain has once again come to me
I am the darkness of the night
For no one seems to care about me

The night is often neglected
For no one is awake to see it’s beauty
As I stand in pain from head to toe
No one cares about me

The night is like a mystery
With things yet to discover
Yet no one cares to take that adventure
To see what the night has to hold

They only want to see the light of the day
For that is their comfort zone
So I stand in silence with the night
And wonder, Can anyone see my heavy load?

The darkness of night will soon be over
If only for a little while
Yet this beast that lies within me
Is there through darkness and light

Can no one see the pain I am in?
Do they even dare to come near?
Can no one understand this beast within me?
Do they even know who I am?

The emotional pain is harder
It will last for all eternity
I carry the baggage of that pain
Do they know they make it harder?

I wonder if they really love me
I wonder do they really care
They sure don’t seem to show it
They don’t seem to know I am there

I carry this beast with me always
I carry it with a heavy heart
I sit in silence and listen
I am the silence and darkness of the night
