I Am The Night

I Am The Night

I've considered the night
as the moon's influence grew
over the sky.

I've sat with the night
when the only rain to touch the ground
is salted with regret,
and hastened by emotion.

I've become the night
when the sun falls off my sky
boiling itself into nothingness
as the moon's cold reign commences.

When no moon's white grace
could be reflected in a lover's eye,
I am the night
and I miss the sun dearly.
