Demons of the Night
The sun sets. The world is covered by night,
For the feeble light of the stars cannot match
The power of the demons who yearn to take flight
Into the dreams of those paralyzed with fright.
Though they cling to the last light of day, they can only watch
As the sun sets. The world is covered by night,
Leading children to their parents' bed sides despite
Sweet lullabies, for their innocent dreams often hatch
The demons who yearn to take flight
From one mind to the next. The weary traveler continues without light,
For he has no time to stop. He tries to snatch
The final glow of sunset, but the world is covered by night.
He stumbles over rocks and twigs, trying to find the right
Way, unaware that he has fallen victim to the bewitching
Power of the demons who yearn to take flight.
And so the world continues the cycle, surrendering to the might
Of those who rule the shadows. They watch
As the sun sets and the world is covered by night
And the power of the demons who yearn to take flight.
