The Night Is My Lover

My soul belongs to the night,
it’s web wraps around my halo
like a luscious laced cameo.

The beating of my heart,
echoes deep within the night.
grinding to an eerie beat
taking in the darkness
as if gasping for air.

I lack color,
and hues,
I’m perfumed by it’s aroma.

My heart glows
from the nights fire,
as the night burns with my desire.
