Clinging to the Night

Clinging to the night
Wondering what chased off the light
Clinging to the shadows
And dreaming the impossible

I'm clinging to the skies
The stars forever in my sights
At 3AM I'll rise
To greet the day as it brings life

I'm clinging to the signs
Even though they shed no light
On the thoughts that press my mind
Into the remnants left behind

I frollick in the rain
As the night fades into day
And though the storm has passed my way
I still cling to what it became

I'm clinging to a new hope
That one day, maybe, one day, I will know
When the story's ending's told
I will be stronger as I grow
And one day, maybe, one day, I will go
And cling to my own growth

But now, I'm clinging to the night
Watching the shadows in the firelight
Dancing just past midnight
With the stars shining on high

Clinging to the dream
Clinging at the seams
So clingy, now it seems
That I must set the whole thing free

But I'm still clinging to the night
Waiting for an answer from the sky
And I'm still clinging to a sign
That my choice to wait this time
Is a choice towarrds what's right

And until the truth I find
I'll keep clinging to the night

You painted that very clear dear.
I felt as if I was there roasting a few marshmallows.

As always, you inspire the most random things from my mind

That of the writer to his muse
I am greatful and thankful for you
That of the singer to his tune
I am blessed to know you
That of the dancer to his cues
I will continue to follow suit
And that of the broken-hearted to his blues
I will never forget about you

The Ashes Continuum continues...
Yes, I wanted redundancy.
