Why must the bounds of love and hate continually be so muddled?

I lie under the dark cover of night.
It's creeping around me,
Edging its way closer, still.
I look to the sky for refuge.
I find one star;
The only one in the darkness,
But as I see its dim light shining down on me
I feel safe.
The darkness will not take me tonight.
