Night's Reign

Night’s Reign

Black

Dearest day that came from oblivion,
And ended with the fallen sun,
Thus created cold and bitter Night.
Who pierced the flesh with utter terror,
Combing bare the soulless splendor
of happiness long gone.

Mindless staring,
Hardly caring,
Living softly upon the floor.
Creeping softly
to leave a silence
not yet felt by those before.
Breathing cold
A hollow heart
That some have listened within their core.
Filled with terror to leave those gasping,
Scarcely breathing,
Air of death that crossed the door.
Living hard or hardly living
Pressing breath about my neck
Though the stars shine bright,
And the moon shown true
The Darkness swallowed
My light; my hope; my dreams of you.

And Night shall reign forevermore

Leaving screams of wicked tortured,
Lost within the dark abyss,
As Night has claimed its future kingdom,
Reigning clouds and fogs and mists.

Taking risks with reckless virtue!
Wait tonight, the Night come for you,
In the darkness they want to eat you,
Night holds on with wicked force.

The sun has come at long last,
Raining light on the shadows cast,
They will burn, and they burn fast,
And He will show no remorse

Putting darkness in its place,
Night has died,
Day has risen!
Night shall reign nevermore!

Hello authors! I go by Dorian T. Gray; it's my author name. I'm hoping that it can be a way to keep my legal self somewhat apart from my inner self so when I get to my destination I can live a somewhat normal, mundane-ish life... Well aside from the charities and other stuff that I hope to attend.

My aim is to present my work here in hopes that everyone will give me their feedback (critiques and encouragement) and polish me into a better author. I will strive to do the same. I think that we all have a chance to be great writers but we need each other to grind away the awkward and ugly parts and make our pieces shine.

Thanks for Reading,

D. T. Gray
