Today's prompt is hunger. I'm putting together a book of poems about vampires and other creatures of the night, so that's been on my mind.

For the Light

Now I hunger for the light;
As darkness gathers all around me
Here I stand in deepest night.

Once, this all was my delight;
Once, I thought that I was free.
Now I hunger for the light.

I remember day so bright
I sheltered ‘neath the rowan tree.
Now, here I stand in deepest night.

Sky of blue and clouds of white
Nevermore my eyes shall see;
And now I hunger for the light.

Only shadows in my sight
And the moon glows oh so faintly
While here I stand in deepest night.

I chose the night, became the fright;
Before me all shall flee...
And yet, I hunger for the light
As here I stand in deepest night.
