Perpetual Night

Waking up to such grim skies
Searching for the sun to rise
But night still lingers overhead
Its dark cloak it has yet to shed
The hour young as the clock ticks slow
Seeming like the night may never go
Each minute passing feels like an hour
Over time, it seems, this night has power
Closing eyes once more, wishing to slumber
But that peaceful sleep those tocks encumber
