An Ode to Nighthag

A tissue to my tortured friend

a hand, hug

though both in vein 

a stranger in the night I am

perhaps as strange as any you meet

and see them with haunted eyes

whether anything happened or no

and still in the night I offer much

comfort, repulsive as it is, and love

I might not feel much of the last

my heart having its own deep wounds 

but from one hell to another

places of torment special in nature

calibrated to last forever in the mind

twas a time ago

but I venture, it would be yesterday

were the venue close

the conditions right

and the night would live again.

know that they cant touch your spirit

it is worthy all the same

with words like yours

others will take umbrage 

and let your witness of healing in.
