Night Sun

The night sun burns bright this evening
as it watches us dance in the rain
We pick its fruits
and share its bounty
as we embrace its cold, crystal air
It sparkles in our eyes
with every longing gaze
and fills the air
between every soft kiss
It opens up the darkness
so we can live as kings
owning the world around us
freeing us from the burdens of man
and the inhibitions of mortal life
It gives us
two hopeless lovers
a place to call our own
as the rest of the world
cools in the shroud of darkness
and slumbers the hours away
The night sun is our sun
It asks for nothing
It takes nothing
Instead offering us a place to dance
hand in hand
until the morning comes
Watching us with misty tears
that turn to dew as they touch the grass
beneath the feet of two hopeless lovers
who are finding one another
in a clearing of darkness
made by the smiling face of the nighttime sun
and owned for a moments eternity
by two lovers dancing
in the cold midnight rain

    I know I don't make it to the site too much and I told you I hate to comment and rather email you about things but I figured I'd get back out there and comment on the site. Coincidence after this passed newsletter heh? Anyway, I interpreted this poem as dusk / twilight in the rain … if that's correct… and I couldn't have described it any better. Oh, and by the way Raven… you lose we commented and gave it attention o:)

    This is the first time I have posted a comment on your site. I have read all of your poems. They are all excellent pieces of work and this one is no exception. It somehow breaks the pattern you have been keeping..the dark, sad, and lonely mood that surrounds the rest of your poems. It is about people being happy together while your others are about being pulled apart. It is quite a contrast. I love it all the same. Very nicely done.

    I feel the need to congratulate you one this piece, although I rarely post comments up, firstly because of the weight you sad comment carried in this months newsletter, and secondly because honestly this poem marks a new era for you (I believe). I have been watching your career take off for a while, but this poem truly makes you a poet… I'm glad to see you're not only writing you are learning as you go, and you're getting better and better at it. Here's to the contination of your progress…

    It is very true that when you find your delight in the darkness it feels as eternity . Very nice addition you have made . Thanks .

  15. Carly Smith says:

    i love this poem! i used to be gothic myself and i write some pretty powerful and dark poems, but this one is far better than any i could ever write. it captures ones mind and refuses to let go until we are mystified. excellent!

    Try writing shorter poems — ten to fifteen lines at most. Aim for conciseness, clarity and force.

  25. Kelli says:

    Today is the first time i visited this site. And just for a random bit of information, today was also the first time i got drunk. I dont know why, but one minute i was laughing, frick knows what at, probably just some random thought in my deranged head, but then the next minute, i was crying. i didnt know why at first, i didnt actually know up untill a few minutes before encountering this site or this poem. it was a good five to ten minutes before i calmed down, but i remember thinking to myself, 'jeez, i feel better'. Oh dont worry, i was still drunk as hell, just seeing things…clearer i guess. Thats what this poem did to me when i read it.
    its the best poem ive ever read and i can say, without a doubt the best poem i will ever read.
