The Works Of The Night

Tejas Nair Photography Silent Night

As the cold night dawns, the Dark-ones’ countenances light up,
They are shivering in anticipation of all the pleasure the night gives to them;
And the warm daylight dims as my mood is lifted up.
I am calm in hope of all the pleasure I get from the night.

All through the night, the Dark-ones indulge.
They do and become things too dark to be mentioned openly;
Whilst I put my soul to rest,
As I fall into the arms of Light-God.

The secrecy of the night warms their cold souls.
Their actions come from dark thoughts and need no light to carry them out.
But the solitude of the night cools my passionate veins;
And my words come from a living spirit and need not be loud.

The night will come when they shall sleep like other men.
But it is not this night!
The night will come when I sleep like they shall.
But this night my spirit is at its peak.

This night they grow and weave darkness,
As though they intend to stop the sunlight from shining at dawn.
This night I am up and bright,
Preparing the way before dawn for the sun to shine.

For even if evil successfully lays its egg,
And hatches into a virile spawn before daylight,
Light can still shine in the belly of the darkness,
And it shall run through the evil spawn with the sword of sunlight.

  1. a beautiful blend of prose and poetry. I love this unique style! 🙂

  2. Is there a battle coming, Doc? If there is, please tell me. I would want to be prepared.

    • There is always a war, Trent. Whether it is in the secret place where the heads and movers of politics seat to make life-altering decisions/polices, or the secret places where unkind people plan how to carry out the next wreck, or in your room alone when no one who knows you is watching you, or deep down in the human soul and thoughts with all sorts that we think…

      • This is what I like about you Doc. Only you would give an answer like this, and I must say that I anxiously await such replies. Well said Doc. Absolutely well said. Wars are coming.
