The Night

I used to fear the night
when your unwanted presence
would kiss me goodnight
and I would squirm and blush
’til I fall asleep in your arms

Now, I still fear the night
when your welcomed presence
I would wait,
and wait ’til dusk to dawn
but you never came up

Here’s my take for #FWF Do you fear the night?

          Don’t be sad. Those things are the realities in life that we have to just swallow and accept and move on. 🙂

          I guess so. Well that’s just how I feel.. 🙂 And I do write what I feel, not literally though. I used words to express what I feel, and if you do find my writings sad…well then, I must be sad during those times I write it. If you find it uplifting, then I must be feeling hopeful and positive on those times. 🙂

        Oh i see. I could somehow relate on it. If i have same skill as you have i may write based on what i feel. It would be a great way to express your emotion.

          Try! It will be nice. But if it’s really isn’t your thing, then i’m sure there are lot of other ways of expression. 🙂
