Let’s Call The Night

The endless shadowy nights are hard to spend

but still I wait for darker night to arrive

when the goddess of night, Nyx sits by

my side caressing and combing the tangles

from my ashen hair, envelops me in her  

shady mysterious grasps.


Over many sips of melancholic wine and

gulps of memories I narrate to her the day’s tale

midst many picks and puffs of smoke.

I bare my heart and pull out the agonizing

twines of soul before the mighty dawn

breaks and dispels us both.


Random details of trails I took, trudged on lanes

unknown, while she heeds to the

whispers of my soul stroking the sooty

hair, balms the inflicted heart sores, I tell her

how again he never came home.


She gently wipes the cascading saline tears

with her dusky veil, while I tell her how

day’s light causes me so many woes all

that which she already knows.


I urge her to hurry before scorching

red hot day again arrives,

smiling she replies don’t worry after

 dusk, It’s only me who thrives

Knowing that magical things 

only happen at night, she went 

flying on her ebony wings.
