Be still my pulsing soul,
You must find a way to sleep,
For the moon is slowly rising,
Oh, the morn is not yet here,

My heart, don't disown me,
Think of her a different time,
For the moon is shining high,
Oh, the morn is not yet here,

My head, don't cast these images
In front of me a moment longer,
For the moon is casting deadly shadows,
Oh, the morn is not yet here,

My body, O what secrets are hidden,
Deep inside, I cannot sleep,
For the moon is slowly sinking,
Oh, the morn is not yet here,

And just when the demons arrive,
They are haunting me so,
But the sun is slowly rising,
Oh, the morn is finally here.

i like the use of "dais ex machia" (i hope i spelled that right) you dont often use it but in this poem it fits perfectly

That was fantastic! I'm not usually a fan of four lined stanzas, but this was awesome! I love the meaning that I got out of it. This is definately a fav...mind if I quote some lines for an epigraph for a poem I'm working on?

No problem, just remember to mention me. Glad you liked it.
