Trust the Night

Listening to the silence,

It feels like a scream.

Navy nights, speckled white,

It's too beautiful.

Like a foxglove,

It hides a poison so addictive

It steals your life.

In the city,

Bright neon lights,

Its' fake look,

Mischievous,

Revealing,

Rife.

As though it will brainwash you

Into its' activity.

In the country,

A torturing silence

Lingers for long.

Legends of evil,

Crime,

Fear.

It never leaves you.

It follows you.

Like a stalker.

So no,

I won't

Trust the night,

I will

Go into the welcoming

Day,

And leave the night

To the friskers.
