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.
