The Night

Eyes of the living
Unseeing eyes of the dead
Fear and dread 
A tomorrow
Only for some
Memories
Pushed aside
Masked by thoughts
Of today
Hopes of tomorrow
The night 
Has no mercy
Sights and sounds once hidden
Rush forward
There is no today, yesterday is forever
No today
No hope 
No sweet embraces
Through unblinking eyes
It’s you – and the night
All that was
Is still real
The heavy hand of emotion
Doesn’t leave with the rising sun
Smiles and laughter – hide what is within
