Into Night

Updated on October 30, 2014

Moonlight blooms as day grows slight
Clouds are shifting, changing skies
Into darkness, into night

Through the forest, left or right?
Is it truth or just more lies?
Moonlight blooms as day grows slight

Black and purple shroud your sight
You could follow plaintive cries
Into darkness, into night

Which is dark and which is light?
Which path is your soul’s demise?
Moonlight blooms as day grows slight

Grasping tendrils hold you tight
Clutching shadows drag their prize
Into darkness, into night

Falling, diving from the heights
Will you drown or will you rise?
Moonlight blooms as day grows slight
Into darkness, into night

      I like the use of the night as a metaphor for something deeper. Good job, Lissa.
