And Tonight


… And tonight I won’t keep my windows closed
So the chilling wind blowing loose
Can rob me off the warmth that’s left with me.
Tonight, I shall let winter come
And freeze my crumpled bed, as vast and nothing
As the starless sky, with no moon.
Tonight I won’t wait for the morning sun.
His cruel, yellow light brought me back
From last night’s spent and happy dreams of you
To the cruel world, to my rugged bed.
And tonight my curtains shall not be drawn
So the winter with her shivering touch
Can whisk me off to some place where
I have never been and then let me go!
