I wrote this last year, and felt the need to post it again:

The sun
its delights escape me
the heat from it
the only thing I understand
but only when I can shield myself from it.

My heart is better found
in things of shade and darkness
in those of mystery
and whispers of wickedness
on the night air

those twisting shapes
lurking just around the corner
the barest hint of light
reflecting the
gruesome beauty
of that which you treasure most

That sweet edge of fear.
They are my reassurances
when all else is lost
when nothing else is left

Mother night.
I embrace you
and eschew the sun
twilight to twilight
I will live between
and never miss
the rays
of the sun

your cruelest lover.
