Night Words (unfinished)

night words hunt, and haunt, and stalk
night words are the watching hawk
night words ring of footsteps walking
when there’s no-one there.

night words torture, tease and stray
night words claw the soul away
night words plead for break of day
when no god hears the prayer.

night words have no reasoned rhyme
night words slow the sands of time
night words into nightmares climb
and lead you who knows where.
