Night Words

night words hunt, and haunt, and stalk
night words like a watching hawk
night words creak 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 gods hear the prayer.

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