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

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…
