For Love of Darkness

Let drop the anchor
pull in the sails
damp the lantern
this night is done for me

Darkness, wicked lover of lonely souls, caresses me
I sleep upon the waves of illusion and do dream

Angels of the deep offer me direction and council
distance grows without movement
time slips on, yet the moon hangs still

Darkness calls to me, whispering in my ears
She knows my thoughts, and honors them to the last

The Sun cannot rise
no laughter on the waters now

Sirens wail
waters stale

Afloat on the ocean
alone in my bed
the last crow has left me

Yet Darkness stays instead
