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
