Which brought comfort to the day

Now scours through the night

Searching for some reasoning

To make it all feel worth while

Excellent, dark and intense. Yes, it is those dark hours one must get through, where the demons tend to fill our thoughts and mind.

Voted up +++ and sharing

God bless, Faith Reaper
