The Demons Of Darkness

As the shadows grow deeper

Anxiety takes hold

Doubts fill my head

 

As the darkness creeps in

I am prone to depression

I likely will be afraid

 

As the night takes hold

I feel completely alone

Nothing gives me comfort

 

As the hours last forever

If I’m lucky I find sleep

For it is my only escape

Our First Walk

The way the stars shine
They dazzle my eyes
The sound of the water flow
Lulls me into peace
The sliver of a moon
Sets a perfect mood
Your hand in mine
You pull me into your arms
And softly kiss me
You leave me astonished
By your gentle passion
And I feel this is the start
Of something once in a lifetime

Melting Sky

The sunset was glorious

Pink and lavender clouds

Atop an orange ball

With bright streaks of light

Struggling to hang onto the day

But alas the stars reign

As night shrouds the day

A blanket of darkness

Dotted with twinkling lights

The only way it could be better

Was if you were here to see it

Right by my side…
