The Darkness Of The Night - Poem by Cynthia Silvera

watch as this tear falls into empty space
see it fall into lifes nameless place
can you see the sparkle as it catches the light
that sparkle once was happlyness that is no longer in sight
as it fall watch it, its color has changed
from blue to bright red it has a wide range.

there it goes all alone it continues to fall
with it, it takes the emotion, the emotion of all
wait can you hear it a sob has broke free
has shook the lungs cold but yet continues to be
here it comes a force has been built between the eye
a wall of shear water, its now time to cry

a shudder, a scream, darkness envolpes your soul
the darkness of the night has taken its toll
