Within the Night
Within the Night
The darkness crows within my souls delight.
Hiding beneath blacken thoughts within the night.
Darken grass blends pathways to freshly dropped dew.
Skies colored in black in place of heavens blue.
Haunts of an eclipse surrounds the moon.
Beckons for a judgement, upon the coming doom.
Humankind destined to end within a flashing light.
As meteors, pummel the earth before my sight.
Red flaming flares descending in spectacular array.
While streaking of lights change a summer's night to day.
My heart gives way from delight to fear.
My soul tells me the end is coming near.
The gin escapes the bottle, in a rhapsody of ire.
As missiles flee the earth, igniting meteors on fire.
The earth has flexed all the power of its might.
Now we must wait and see if this is the end of nights.
