I know the night

I know you, you devilish dark and alluring night

You’ve taken me on quests and lead me astray

Only to have me taunted and ridiculed

And punished by the obscene and audacious day.


I know you. You have sat me in the city light

You have passed me through the lonely lanes

To venues locked or sold or stolen

To loud cries, dark sobs and bone chilled pains.


I know you, you thief, you blackened witch

You’ve had me gleefully grace a game of chance

And charged the glass and called to drink it all

And the lover lost and his love lost to romance.


I know you, you sarcastic, narcissistic night.

Your promise of entanglement lasting and long

Then as sunrise offers out his extended hand

You have left me, gone before the final song.
