Lost In The Night


Here we are
Lying in the midst of our discomfort
Hand in hand
We may still have a chance to survive
And I am
Incapable of breathing in this air
Nothing here
To hold against my heart and cherish
This lonely sky
So vast and sorrowful in its beauty
I lose myself
In the dark mysteries of the night
A shallow lust
For this darkness that harbors deep intensity
Tugs at my soul
And opens up a door for deeper dreams
Time passes quickly
I watch the sun begin to rise
And in its glory
I see colors that will forever stay unnamed
I’ve been here before
But always seem to forget this lonely truth
I lay my head back down
And wait for the peaceful night to return

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
