Endless is This Night

A Poem By Me

searching through seamless bounds of forgotten text

thinking on subjects lost in time and forgotten

I ponder where this road will take me next

I come here time to time, but far to often

searching like a soul that knows no serious fate

riding out storms that chain down the light

can I go on if I am to remain in this state

oh dearly, and truly, how endless is this night

debating the darkness of each passing star

the chaos for which I am programmed to see

the distance of destiny chimes in through my heart

and falls down upon the emptiness in me

then nightmares and dreams all come haltering still

and reach out across an endless sight

where ghosts dance merely atop yonder hills

oh dearly and faithfully how long is this night

than seeming to drift upon stormy rocks

I fall asleep at life's wheel

the hands of death come streaming in like hands of clocks

and to each finger an embrace of some thrill

I awaken to find, it was in my mind the story unfolded

I leapt to my feet and screamed with some merit of delight

I ran to the mirror and my face set hard and coldened

Oh dearly, and unconventionally how long is this night
