There are moonlit nights
On sandy shores-
Barefooted and barely clothed,
Worries washed away on waves
And troubles left for other days.
There are soulful nights
In firelight lost-
All Red-wined up and caught in kisses,
Drunk in love and wrapped in arms
And blanketed in each other’s charms.
There are lonely nights
When loves away
And nothing known can soothe you,
Till comfort calls you on the phone
And reminds you that you’re not alone.
There are other nights
Dark and distant-
All sleepless in the shadows,
As silly, stupid, stubborn slips
Cause listless lies to leak from lips-
Those long dark nights when tongues are tied
And troubles start to tremble,
When sanity is cast aside
And the sense of self dissembles.
When the one you thought you knew so well
Can look to you a stranger,
While the world no longer looks the same
Before the truth of human nature.
