Creative: As the Night Fades

As the night fades to nothingness
And the nothingness fades back to light,
I sit alone staring at the sky
Lay ever infinitely away, ponder what I am thinking.

That laying before a heartless horizon I so adore
I am destined to be replaced,
And never to be traced,
Back to the chance for a paradise I never faced.

But I am to be comforted.

The sky will always sleep above me,
It guarding me forever,
Until that nothingness
never dies again…
And again…
And again…

  1. I really enjoyed this one. I particularly love the first stanza – I have an affinity for the night and gazing up at the sky, feeling that sense of infinite and finite merge. I think this part really resonated with that in me.

  2. This is beautiful Alex, I adore your use of rhyme, perfect meter, and the format that is unique.
    “But I am to be comforted.”…wonderful poetry.

  3. This is beautiful Alex. I love the imagery and that you allow the reader their own interpretation. For example the lines,
    “I am destined to be replaced,
    And never to be traced,
    Back to the chance for a paradise I never faced.”
    There’s an intimacy to it. Maybe because it feels like a private moment.
