To Night

i pause at the ends of time
gaze in wonder into your shadowy
endlessness, your arms,
stretching across velvety
expanses, jealously
embrace all to the fringes
of veiled existence.

Inscrutable, unpersuadable,
unwilling to unfurl the secrets,
the countless stars your
tantalizing eyes,
you keep mysteries deeper
than aeons in my own interior
deeper than being itself.

you and i are one, night
without you i cease to be.
