nowhere in the dark

nowhere in the dark a hopeful sound
the cadences of night are never kind
no signals and no meanings are defined
\cold and delusion complete the surround
while our best wishes in silence are drowned
to quiet hopes there speaks an empty mind
of hearts and forces that have been confined
by more than nature in this horrid pound
let us not mention just what words were said
by those too eager to demand a trust
not easy given by the ones who know
loathsome creatures soaring overhead
with fiercest breath turn swiftly into rust
those things we least would want to see let go
