Self-attempts in the delights of poetry

On This Dreary Night

On this dreary night
Shadows cloud the mind
In fear, I paw for the light
Wanting to beat back the tide of time

On this dreary night
Slumber has left my side
My soul yearns to rest right
Yet in this life I still abide

And on this dreary night
I cry out in surrender, in fright
Try as I might
I think I am losing all fight

To be free from the shackles of life
Oh, how I long to take flight
To flee my tumultuous hive
On this dreary night…
