MIDNIGHT THOUGHTS

by Jasmine Williams

It is very late in the night and I cannot sleep

The birds are not speaking, and I cannot hear from the deafening silence

The room is fuzzy, and the dots are growing I cannot see.

The darkness is blinding me. It won’t shut up.

The thoughts amazing and terrifying.

That one day I will close my eyes and know I will never open them again.

That all steps and all breathes are leading to one thing.

Nothing will be the same.

The stars I see are long dead with new ones we cannot see.

My heart is beating but I do not know where

It is very late in the night and I cannot sleep again.

All the days yet to be will be a memory and gone.

the fireflies are dancing in my head and I cannot see.

The battles I have fought might win again.

the people I see might die before me.

I cannot help but wish to not exist to never feel this pain.

But the stars and people and sky,

Keep me here another night.

It is very late in the night and I cannot sleep again.

But the blinding darkness and deafening silence comforts me.

For just another night.
