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
