Moonlit - Poem by Mark Ruiz

Night unfolds.
With it it brings the chill,
So warm, sad
How it brings me such comfort.
The stars, mockingly, watch
As the night sky drapes me.
My eyes wide open
Take what light they can.
My legs weak, arms numb.
The night behind me
Step by step.
Stabbing, jabbing at me.
Celestial visions dance in the sky.
Midnight and the world is still.
Eerily still as it thunders, darkness
Creeping even when still.
What fiend, leave me be...
I awake yet the darkness still around me.
Never did I sleep...
Yet I dream or I am dreamt?
Oh night take me.
I stand no more.
