Aurora Nights

Out in the clear skied night

Two tied souls look to the stars

Hearts entwined so tight

Thinking of each other from a far

A time soon to come

So much time apart

Uncertain of if their love has succumbed

Will they be able to restart

The heavens above a sign that it will take flight

Heavenly message given through Aurora nights.

The Trolls of Twilight

Beware the night
When the moon is at full light
The fog rolls across the marsh
A chill in the bones so harsh
It can bring a shiver up your spine
What lurks in the shadow’s blind
You can hear the whisper in the trees
A sound that will make you freeze
What can be moving within those woods
Something you dread moving into your neighborhood
They will frighten you at first sight
The trolls of twilight

Wishing Upon A Star

When I wish upon a star

Even if I am doing from afar

I think of days with you

Going back to when I said I do

Missing the smell of your hair

Wishing I was back there

To wake into your arms

Awakened by your naughty charms

Is the wish I will make upon the stars tonight.

Across the Room

kiss-1858088_960_720

Looking at you from across the room

The beauty of my flower in bloom

Time has passed since we first met

A look from you leaves me in a cold sweat

Unable to divert my eyes

A ravenous hunger arises

Moving to you I pull you close

Into my arms I propose

A time of wantonness desire

Rising in us a fire

Passion unabated we explore

Until we are spent with no more

Curled together we hold each other tight

Off we fall into a blissful night

Late Nights

clock-1673583_960_720

Clock strikes midnight

A time most begin to fright

But I alas is the time for me to hit the hay

Staying up late

Is becoming harder to take

When I was a young man I would start my nights late

As I grow older if find it hard to stay awake

Now midafternoon is my time

Not too early and not too late

Of course I try to prevent this fate

I try an afternoon nap

I sleep in late

All to no avail

As summer comes and the sun’s setting becomes delayed

My need to go to sleep will be downplayed

So I guess it’s time to lay me down to sleep

Until my bladder makes we wake

But that’s another story all together

 

Anticipation of You

acid-alien-art-bad-trip-favim_com-4936786

Anticipation of you

Time passes slowly as I think of what we will do

Being apart is a drain on my soul

You are what in the end makes me whole

When I walk through that door

It is you I look for

The look in your eyes

Makes me begin to fantasize

What our night may bring

You are my everything

A night of passion

A night of conversation

A night next to you

Is all I want to do

So I sit here still

Waiting with Anticipation

Darkness Into Light

 

favim_com-4963425

Lost in the night

 

Hidden from your sight

 

A thief comes to snatch away your soul

 

Sadness he leaves

 

Uncertainty it breeds

 

Dreams created that leave you morose

 

When you awake

 

You’re left with heartache

 

Looking for the light

 

Needing help with this fight

 

Upon the Lord your hope rests

 

Grace and mercy He provides when you confess

 

Upon Him you can rely

 

To take that tear away from your eye

 

Taking the darkness out of the night

 

Make your way into His light

 

Temptress

couple-gif-love-lust-favim_com-2930726

You are my temptress in the night

The enchantress of my passion

A seductress of my heart

Charmer of my soul

The siren for the song calling me to you

How can I resist your enchantments

I am under your spell

When I am with you I want to be near you

When I am away I dream of your touch

You are my temptress in the night

 

Out of Darkness into the Light

Man Walking Towards Cross

Purging the darkness out

Fighting back the void of night

Left with a hole so full of blight

Walking a path through a tunnel ahead

Towards the end and freedom’s stay

Often stumbling and falling to the ground

Arms of darkness trying to pull me back down

Trail ahead fraught with danger

Fighting furiously to save my soul

Alone I’m left lost to despair

Needing the help of the one who has conquered death

Pull me close oh Lord, fill me with your might

Lead my path ahead into your light
