The Dark And Endless Night

The dark and endless night of my soul 
stretches out before me.

Empty hallways echo with silent intent
for the loss of my dreams.

Jousting with my dreadful doubt again
is my fragile feverish fear.

Questions bounce from side to side now
on the walls of my mind.

Songs dwindle and die with a whimper
as notes are brushed away.

My thoughts are tentative and credulous
when pondering your acts.

Lift me up once more my heart to soar
in wingless flights of fancy.

Always there to adore and restore you
while you drift far away.

Fatuous touches of life's legerdemain
have left me with dread.

Will you never be there in the light
gleaming with glorious love.

Hope is hapless when held by a man
of unredeemable sorrow.

Miserable mendicant will I ever be
while pressing my need for love.

Once there were two, now as one
I am a supplicant for your return.

The dark and endless night of my soul
stretches out before me.
