Ascend the Night

a poem

I ascend the night,

where Jacob once descended,

his ladder, splintered and dry,

as faith and dreams parted.

 

I ascend the night,

where tomorrows end,

and darkness folds, dreams within dreams,

now comforting my ghost.

 

I ascend the night,

when dawn and dusk collide,

bringing frigid days, long.

And traveled paths stilled at birth.

 

I ascend the night,

where love was present,

by attainable stars, reborn,

while dreams descend the night.

The End
