The stillness of the night
Quietly roars awake the sleeping giant.
The emptiness of the light
Revealing nothing of the past or future
Leads It with the senses pliant
Straight into the warmth of the lover’s touch.
The comfort of the caresses distract.
The sweetness of embrace amuse.
And the smell of love lingers softly.
But in the shadows, discover thus the creature
The darkness of the lover lost
The sickness of a pleasure too much
And the void of the abstract.
Emptiness takes over dreams
Distress shields the way
And the heart turns to clay.
But at last, the night does close
The darkness slowly fades
As the break of day does manifest
A giant unscathed by the blows.
