Like mist the darkness falls.
It takes me into its dark embrace, to block out light and shroud me in its cold tendrils,
I fear the night that comes upon me with no warning no explanation and no heart.
If only I could feel the shift in the air from day to night, at least have a clue.
Its here again, the moment before I breathe out and let go.
Night as black as death it keeps me locked in its menacing hold.
Until I light a single flame and night withdraws into the deep places of a thousand regrets.
