Ruled by Night

February 28, 2015


Ruled by the night the sleep that I crave evades me,
Seeking a vision I lapse into unconciousness,
moving through the night,
the long ago dead with empty faces
snapping at my heels.
My soul becomes eager for the nightly chase,
Run, don‘t look back, go bird speed,
I glance round emerging from white mist,
horns and a tail threatening to invade,
come alongside me, reality —
lest I exist in this state of my eternity.
