The Night

From dusk knows dusk,
And air
Knows air.
Water to
Mid time is mid time.

Light, I never saw;
But she's always
Revealing herself.

In a constant running,
I chase her.
She seduces me;
She laughs at me.
While I stumble,
She never waits for me.
Still, I love the idea
Of Dawn...
Of Seeing Dawn.
Yet, we are punished of one thing,
The Forbidden sight of each other.
In spite of it, I've heard things about her:

Her beauty defies a glow
That I can't have
The portrayal of fear, death, and escapades
I am
I don't know, If I was
That to her. Or,
If I was that to myself

I am the constant nuisance that brings trouble
to the youth, and to their sleeplessness
to their "un-youthfulness"
to their instant crank and insanity.
Am I really that ugly?

Still, She brings hope.
She is the light, after all.
The Day is a friend to the ones who seek life
The Day is a passion and improvement to one's loved
To prove that they're well, taken-care of.
You, oh Dawn, are that hope I can seek
but can never see.
Hope isn't seen.
It is felt.
And that's how, I ought to propose
my love for you.

But I am the dusk.
And dusk is for dusk.
Dusk is for darkness.
Darkness can never be with light.

But Dawn, you are the light.
