Alone in the dark: Gloom

Its dark tonight, very dark,
Perhaps the darkest night ever,
That history, thets so long and old,
Have witnessed during its lifetime,
Its cold presence tonight has brought,
A queer feeling to many hearts,
A feeling that leaves one so alone,
A feeling filled so much with gloom.

It seems tonight in this dark hour,
That earth denies to go around,
It has fatigued itself so long,
And lost tonight in battle with time,
The gloom of loneliness tonight,
Has touched even its heart to core,
For its partner, the moon tonight,
Is lost behind the darkest clouds.

Its dark tonight, accursed with hate,
There is no way for an escape,
There is no end to the hate and sorrow,
There is no promise of day tommorrow,
The only thing that this night gifts,
Is a pain that tears you up slow,
The only thing tonight allowed,
Is a silent death, alone in the dark…
