Sonnet 09

At night, have you been so sad or frightened?

Scared of the nights howl and clinging to light.

Running away and not being beckoned.

All things see it and as despair or blight.

Some say it is the true weakness of all.

Humans dream about escaping its giant shadow.

However no one could escape but through some stall.

It can make some women become widows.

Or men turning into widowers, and alone.

People should embrace it like a soft bed.

Even children, if caught won’t be full grown.

And some want to become a true undead.

But no one can escape, death’s eternal.

Make the wrong move and it will be fatal.
