When Night Falls Like A Dark Rain: A Poem

Published on by Francesca Quarto

When night falls like a dark rain, covering all with inky  splotches of wet

All sound is muffled beneath the stone of gray

When night falls like a shade of velvet drifting over a window framing the moon

all light is smothered and its memory quickly fades into the gloom

When night falls like a hammer wielded in a frenzy of righteousness

the world is stunned into silence awaiting the dawn to prove its fears unfounded.

When night falls like a warrior succumbing to a mortal wounding

the dreamer lies beneath the burden of his life where there is no interruption in the cycle; only

the cries in the vague outlines of shadows, calling to the sun.
