Night swallowed up all the shiny blue
It swallowed up the deep grey gloom
It swallowed up difference and likenesses
It swallowed lit corners and ate
Night swallowed up the tired and depleted
the lonely and forgotten
Night swallowed up all the joys
and gratitudes, the platitudes, and honors
tucking them in for a Sunny return
Night came to give rest to the light
To quiet the busy mind
To give replenishment for the long day
To lay down the dreams
of making better.
Ending the worst for a new chance
Dreams of Love and beauty that will find light
in the new day.
Herald a new Alchemy for tomorrow.
Night came to have no dreams at all
save for the tender dive
into the want of nothingness
to forget regrets and disappointments
to simply fall deep down the path
Night laid Herself down
