Come with me, fall into darkness
Come discover the beauty of night
The secret ways and shadows
The wonders seen without sight.
Come with me, sink into magic
Darkness and wonder we possess
Walk with me through dreams
While the world lays at rest.
Come with me, dwell within me
Until dawn brings the light
Hold me until we feel eternal
In the warm embrace of the night.
Come with me, feel passions song
Until night throbs in your blood
Let me feel you, skin to skin
In a moment my heart will ever hold.
Only come to me beloved
I have no place in the light
And would you have ever loved me
If I were not the Lady Night?

Yours felt a thousand tales begin.
A thousand tales I wish to know,
The joyous and satirical,
For how could I not hold them dear,
When ev’ry word is lyrical?
Your tasteful tongue speaks tasteful words,
And leaves my body all but purged.
So please keep speaking--never stop.
For all your metaphors acquired,
Your pitch and tone a music box,
Its rise and fall: a choir’s,
Your lips so physically inclined,
Your breath like sweet ambrosial wine.
