What the Night Says

The darkness says: It’s night.
The stars say: Shine.
Fantasy says: It’s magic.
The valley says: No, it’s mine.

Mystery says: It’s all a puzzle.
The Dream Gatherer says: Resolved.
The brightness says: I’m fading.
The moonlight: I’m dissolved.

Memory says: Remember.
Demonica shouts out: Scream!
The awakening whispers: Sunrise.
The night says: It’s all a dream.
