A COLD DARK NIGHT

A COLD DARK NIGHT

A Poem by angeleapaugh

    A COLD DARK NIGHT

          IT'S A COLD DARK NIGHT THAT CALLS TO ME
            THAT WHISPERS MY NAME IN THE GLOOM
          AS IT DRAWS ME OUT FROM THE SAFETY OF
               MY COMFORTABLE DARKENED ROOM

               THE FROSTY AIR FREEZES MY FACE
               AS I STAND THERE IN THE NIGHT
           THE TREES AROUND ME STAND SO STILL
             AS THE WIND TAKES AWAY MY SIGHT

          I'M COLD AND I WANT TO HUNKER DOWN
            OR AT THE MOST GIVE THE WIND MY BACK
     JUST PUT ONE FOOT IN FRONT OF THE OTHER I SAY
           WHISPERING WORDS OF COURAGE I LACK

          I WANNA SAY I WALKED AS FAR AS IT TOOK
             TO OVERCOME THIS EMPTINESS INSIDE
         BUT INSTEAD I RAN JUST AS FAST AS I COULD
      BACK TO MY COMFORTABLE DARK ROOM TO HIDE

Sometime. All of us need the darkness.
"IT'S A COLD DARK NIGHT THAT CALLS TO ME
THAT WHISPERS MY NAME IN THE GLOOM
AS IT DRAWS ME OUT FROM THE SAFETY OF
MY COMFORTABLE DARKENED ROOM"
I understand the above lines. Alone and darkness is needed to gather back heart and mind. Thank you Angela for sharing the amazing poetry.

"A COLD DARK NIGHT"
angleapaugh,
This poem relays a between courage and
not quite ready to step out with total courage.
The effort is made to be brave, to try.
"I'm cold and I want to hunker down
or at the most give the wind my back
just put one foot inf front of the other I say
whispering words of courage I lack"
sometimes the need for quiet and solitude
with no challenges within soothing shadow
is just what a person may need.
Good poem!
Blessings,
Kathy

Ah, I adore poetry of a darker nature. It soothes my very core. I find this extremely familiar as it pertains to my own life. Good job with this piece!
