I Do Prefer The Night

Hi everyone, I hope you’re all well. I’m sharing a poem with you again today. I hope you enjoy it!

I Do Prefer The Night

I long for the calm of night to begin
As silvery moonlight grazes my skin
And soothes the anxious fiend within
Oh, I do prefer the night

I stare up at myriad shades of black
With the burning stars all staring back
And forget all things my life may lack
Oh, I’m welcomed by the night

A reprieve from struggles of the days
And the need to be all things, all ways
The nighttime takes my cares away
Oh, I feel freer in the night

As always, thank you for spending your valuable time with my words, I really do appreciate it!

Until next time,
