At Night

At night,
Yes, at night
When my wandering, lonely shadow
Is the only company I have,
When the complaining sound of my heartbeats
Is the only sound that reaches my thirsty ears,
When heartless darkness scratch
My hungry eyes,
When hot sighs are sacrificed
Upon the alter of my trembling lips,
When my searching hands are cut
By the ruthless emptiness around me,
I fall on my knees,
Cross my bleeding fingers,
Close my wet eyes,
And wait
for the Light yet to come.
