Sunlight fades
Menace
Slowly creeps
Starts with shades
Of grey to black

Like a gentle hug
Followed
by shocking slap
When darkness
Insidiously seeps

Forcefully keeps
Me in its grips
Until naught else
But sadness weeps
As nightmares rip

Strips the reason
From the sanity
Creates a tourist
Where once native
