I fear the night,
(Dreams of the Raven Haired Girl)          
-----------------------------------------                                  
I fear the night,                                    
not the darkness, not the shadows                    
that run from the moonbeams, searching light          
but the evil of the moments, of their eternity        
that creeping hand of time, extending, unrelenting.  
I fear the night                                      
Not the Quiet, Not the stillness.                    
that should bring me the comfort                      
Of my security, of my sleep.                          
But the thoughts,                                    
of the Raven, of the kiss                            
the Raging dreams, of her passion                    
of her eyes, of her love                              
I fear the night,                                    
not its coming, not its going,                        
the wish for love, for dreams, for Romance,          
But the unknowing, of her distance, of her absence    
that she may never really be, in my arms,            
as I dream, in the night.                            
                                                      
James Parker Haley @1994

Another great poem, James! Very nice!

And slight is the sting of his trouble
Whose winnings are less than his worth;
For he who is honest is noble,
Whatever his fortunes or birth.~~~Alice Cary, ~Nobility~

You've uncovered some hidden secrets I think many in here can relate to...our fears.  This was outstanding!  I really like your style of writing....it just flows and flows.  I think you dug deep for these thoughts you shared here.  Thank you ....
