Nightly Scrounge


Basking in darkness

I compose senses

Hearing the nothing

Smelling thy candles.


Checking nightly air

Humidity encloses me

Moist and calming

It captures me.


Back into the darkness

Laying in comfort

I swallow briskly

Blinking at sorts.


Diabolical is black

I hear creaks

I yet shutter

Fear is bleak.


I am enraptured

Scrounging for peace

A nightly feat

Efforts tis deceased.
