12 – A
Thoughts in the dark night
I’d rather drown myself in the silence of the night,
Than to lay awake in the sound of the light,
To rather live in an illusion,
Than in hindsight.
How I love the darkness of the night,
No one to blame
& none to pick up a flight.
Just calm, peace and quiet-
Beneath the stars that shine so bright.
Should I forever stay this way?
Is it injustice to feel all the peace in the world in secret?
Or should I share this source of solace-
With a human form of love, freedom and grace?
Ah, how I feel the silence,
And how like a child I write my thoughts in a poem without vigilance.
