The entry came with night –
So buckle up and get ready
For joy, for hope, for fright.
I am a fragile entity,
Who’ll shatter with the day
You come to me with grief and woe
And I take the hurts away.
I am a predator with fangs of steel
All cloaked and armed to kill
I’ll tear away all humanity
And still won’t have my fill.
There’s no one who comes into my clutches
No child who’ll fail to blunder,
That I won’t grant with perfect joy,
Or rip that joy asunder.
And when morning breaks, the new dawn comes,
And I’ve slipped away and died…
Be sure to visit tomorrow night –
