Night, Night

Updated on March 22, 2013

Night, Night

Please shield me from myself.

Hide me deep into your soul.

Keep me safe from my thoughts.

Blanket me, protect me.

Keep me blind to reality.

Night, Night

Keep the silence around.

I don’t want to hear the sound of my thoughts.

Can’t you see that my tears are the dew that fall upon the ground?

I feel safer with only you around.

Please comfort my soul.

Allow me to live in your land of nothingness.

Night, Night

Let me explore your mysteries.

So I can let go of my tendencies.

Never to see the light of day again.

Please be my last friend.

Night, Night

Oh so motionless and stuck in time.

I don’t know how to control these thoughts of mine.

Your silence is so welcome, so comforting.

Peace be mine.

Peace be still.

Night, Night

I cry out your name.

Keep me close.

I am afraid.

I am in emotional pain.

Will you beg me stay?

I refuse to let you send me away.

Night, Night

I am going to close my eyes.

I am going to fade away.

Before I leave, I would like to thank you.

Thank you for not sending me away.

I am closing my eyes to create my own night.

You can go away now.

Death is coming and I will be alright.
