Sometimes the Night

Sometimes the night 
Eddies and veers
and swallows the light

Sometimes the ears
Are reservoirs 
For whispered fears

Sometimes the stars
Shroud and disguise 
The deepest scars

Sometimes the eyes 
Are quick to swoon
And fall for lies

Sometimes the moon
Cannot bear to depart
From shores roughly hewn

Sometimes the heart
Loses the fight 
And is torn apart 

Sometimes the night
drowns all that is bright
