The Night, A Clever Seductress

Takes me down

Image : ‘Blue Forest’ By Ross Oscar

I awake once more to hear the rain
and the voice of distant thunder
I have been searching
in my dreams for you

I walk down empty hallways
tread the well-worn paths
and then I always wonder
what brought me here

But my heart
my heart is the most worn
all these years far from each other
amidst my tangled sheets

How I need to feel your touch
even in the silence
I am never alone
you still fill the empty spaces

I feel the night all around me
and I feel you in my liquid dreams
but the last of them
always slips through my fingers

The moment cascades around me
as the night
a clever seductress
takes me down
