Sleepless Wonder


There in a day when sleep fails 

I expect the echoes of the night 

But the crickets are sleeping, dogs

are no where in sight 


The wind must have taken a break

because the stillness is a deadly fright

I gaze at the moon and the stars

both lacking their lack luster light 


I wonder why the night is so still

could I be a spirit in the night

I feel my body for a hint of life

my heart starts racing with fright


The darkness starts getting darker 

there‘s no light left in sight

The stars become even dimmer 

The Moon has disappeared in the night


I close my eyes to the stillness 

and I wonder my plight

When slumber finally finds me

I wonder if I’ll wake up another night
