Treasure Island

Light


The sunlight pushes itself out to rise against the sky,
so to the night I've grown so fond, i must sadly say goodbye.

the daylight comes and rips away the solemnity of night,
the revelation its accompanied by i always try to fight.

the revelation that my true colors shine in the glowing light of day,
the hold of daylight shows my scars, its grip i cannot sway.

the truth that come with daylight causes my very heart to chafe,
the nights my only friend now, and the only place i'm safe.

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
