Here is a little piece I’m working on inspired by…

Nocturnal Lament

The dark chases away the

Pain from the harsh light of day

Moving stealthily from room to


Dragging the sheets on the cold


Longing, searching for clarity.

Sleep evades…

The mind is still busy…




Worrying about what’s to come

And what has gone by…

Too scared to say.

Afraid to dare to be happy.

What if I let my mind run


Free to be in a state of calm.

Sleep come to me.

I need you.

I’m tired of running this marathon and placing


Shadows grow.

Was that thunder?

The clap before a light downpour.

The walls grow moist.

The dank corners hide the shame.

Memories flow.

48 hours of longing…

Every second seems like forever.

Sleep, come to me easy.

Come to me slowly…

The plush cover of the cloak of night.

Hush…be still.

Save the fight.

Calmness, then the fall..
