A Quatern

A chapter in the book Tales Of Darkness And Light

In Light Of Day

by The Death

Sometimes, in light of day, I feel
an urge to dig my hidden fears
from graves inside my barren heart,
now left too cold for hopes to thrive.

The sound of time, I can't resist...
sometimes. In light of day, I feel
like screaming at my shadows that
are meant to trace my silent breaths.

As sunshine casts a lucid world,
my eyes are lost in dreaming dark;
sometimes, in light of day. I feel
like shutting them, so as to sleep.

The day's a drag, night seems a null;
across its stretch, I lie and lie
to make my numbing self believe--
sometimes, in light of day...I feel.
