Poetry Thursday

"Lady of the Night"

I look into the sky, at your great big staring eye
It's just a sliver
The wind is blowing hard, and my skin begins to crawl
I feel a shiver

The night is yours to play, while I sleep the time away
I often wonder
Who it is you are, will you always be so far
When I do slumber

Do you sneak into my mind, finding places to unwind
As I am dreaming
Do you conjure up my thoughts, unearth ground that likes to rot
Nightmares streaming

Are you mean or are you nice, visit once or visit twice
Should I love you or despise, think you dumb or think you wise
Look your way and be afraid, for the trouble that you've made
in my life

Are you lovely to behold, beauty young or wretched old
Do you care about me here, when my heart is full of fear
Reaching down with your long finger, stirring muck, leftovers linger
"sorry dear"

I will pay you for your time, if you kindly do not mind
Leave my heart, my mind and home, I just want to be alone
Take your finger and your sliver, take your darkness and your shiver
Go to hell, you dreamer killer
I refuse to live in fright
Of the lady of the night
By ~ Me
