Echoes of the night.

Echoes of the night.

A Poem by Fairy Khan

In the shadows where the silence screams,
Dwells a realm beyond our darkest dreams.
The moonlight pales, the stars retreat,
As night unfolds its cold conceit.

Whispers echo in the void,
Promises of light destroyed.
The air grows thick with sorrow's breath,
A chilling dance with silent death.

Forgotten souls in shadows creep,
Haunting memories, secrets keep.
Eyes like hollow pits of night,
Void of mercy, void of light.

Hope here fades to black,
No way forward, no way back.
Despair, a cloak that binds the heart,
Shattered dreams, all torn apart.

Yet in this abyss, a truth we find,
In every shadow, a twisted mind.
Embrace the darkness, let it in,
For only then, can light begin.

I like that idea of a conceited night...But eventually the sun shines again and the night meets his match.
I wonder if all poets are twisted minds. It sure feels like that for me.
I like the oxymoron of the silence screams.
and I like Sorrow's breath...
we have to face our worse before we can get better and see the sun again.
