Night's Grief


by The Lavender Bard



Cloud-canopied sky

Bloodless hands gripping pommel

Night vision well keened


Little by little

I trace your path to that place

Stepping carefully


Whispers permeate

The silent noise around me

Between each rain drop


Lightning adorns truth

I crumble beneath its weight

Roon pools catch our guilt


Hushed rage as I reach

In night's grief you're held to me

I will take you home
