On a night like this one
There is no moon to behold
And few stars light the night.
Just the velvety black sky
Enveloping my fragile heart
And filling my weakened soul.
It holds me close like a lover
Slipping farther into its embrace.
Feeling the beating of its heart.
That heart that can be so cold,
Or be so forgiving and kind,
To those under its dark spell.
