In the darkness

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.
