One Night - A Halloween-inspired Poem

Cloaked in black,

the night steals


until only shadows



A celestial blanket

unfolds across the sky,

pinpoints of magic,

and wishes,

and dreams.


Disguised from the world,

new faces are worn

on the autumn-crisp streets.

Anonymity brings



One full moon

sees all.

Her white light reaches

through dark branches

to touch the ground.


No one can hide

what they were,

what they are,

what they are destined to be,

for the night knows.


And she doesn’t forget.
