autumn nights

My English Poems
autumn nights

To what I have become my love,
I couldn' t say a word
the autumn nights are changin' me,
but reasons I' ve found not.

My heart is full of sorrow now,
I look up to the sky
and in my mind only one word,
die, I' d like to die.

The full moon' s light is blinding me,
children of the night
hear them call, they' re waiting now,
for me to choose their side.

Should I leave or stay, my love,
you are the one
who holds me back, or else,
I would have long been gone.
