It is upon us
With colors and pitches of darkness
Painful shrills and mournful shrieks
Announcing its arrival
The fall of the night
It’s Night fall
Demons scream to demons
Weapons cry to weapons
The hungry earth gulps weary blood
Impatient soil blankets tattered flesh
Our eyes are blinded by your gloom
Creatures of the night lurk among your shadows
Disembodied spirits chirp and wail upon your
Memories of dirges depart not your name
Oh falling Night
Will you forever loom above us?
Is there a chance of birthed light in you?
Will you not stop falling, falling
Falling upon us?
