Woe In The Night
In the terrifying darkness
Came out the crescent.
Twinkles over dark sky,
Reminded the day's mess.
Dews over the tender leaves
Trickled as if someone's tears.
While flowed with the breeze,
Whine of the wilted flowers.
Fragrance in the air
Couldn't relieve the pain
Silence of the wind
Tried to fill the gash in vain.
Struggles of a weary day,
Laments over the loss,
Waves of wrath and fear,
Overshadowed the mind.
Amidst the agony,
Unrest and anguish
Instead of haunting nightmares
We hope for sweet dreams.
