To hide from light, I dreamt all day
and woke amidst the midnight gray
to frantic pulls within my heart
to venture out into the dark
and see if you had come for me,
some arcane wordless mystery,
I stood again beside the veldt
enthralled in all the gloom I felt.
And when the hour became an instance,
with one last look into the distance,
I'd sigh and slowly walk back home
to wait for night, again, alone.
