They Come At Night - Poem by Yoni Assis

They come at night
Those bearers of fright
Standing by the gate
Old friends who are never late
Misery is my current state

They never let you forget
Happily bring up your regret
“Where is your mate? ”
“Shouldn’t you two have set a date? ”
Misery is my current state

You can put them off for awhile
If you can afford that dreeeeamy smile
But that will abate
And you’ll find yourself in that previous state
Misery is my current one

“Find someone else to haunt”
“But you invited us in, ” they taunt
“Help me get sedate”
“Sorry, you finished what was on your plate”
Misery is my current state

Darkness gives way to light
My visitors finally take flight
The new day brings hope
Once more ready to cope
Optimism is my current state
