Ungodly Hour

I cannot remember

the last time

I was alone

with my thoughts.


It’s a sad dark place

I stay away from

until I have nowhere

else to turn to.


Today is such a day

when the forces

push me into this

tiny, desolate space.


Enveloped by silence,

an unfamiliar feeling

that lulls me like

a nightmarish lullaby.
