An Enigma

It comes at dusk, then retreats with dawn
A neutral force, but a pawn
To be used, abused
And trod upon
Naught it done wrong

No contrite hearts
Exposing pain
Selfish they are, want to obtain
All possible gain
Alas! from the fain

Its forms leave it scarred –
The victuals for the starved,
The silence in the noise,
The refuge to the prey
– scarred as evil fey

Simply since virtue is used as sin
Discordant din stays hidden within
Until tuned by battle, then a war
The light shall fail
The dark prevail

Just to let readers know, "with dawn", "obtain" and "within" are supposed to be on the previous line in their respective sections. The site pushed them down.
