Night Owl

Night Owl

A Poem by Kailani

The night sweeps me up and pulls me in like a soft blanket on a crisp December morning

Shrouding me in a time that belongs only to me and the darkness

We’ve become well acquainted in the foggy, unsettling comfort

Filling the hours with conversations that beckon out thoughts hiding in the furthest corners of my mind

Sometimes I’m overcome with the feeling that I shouldn’t be here

Like I have no business being awake

But I stay because I’m used to losing myself in places I don’t belong


“Night owl” isn’t a title I consider myself as

I’m not nearly wise enough

I just want to escape into the dark denim sky until solid ground is a foreign concept to me

I want to watch the long-gone stars’ heartbeats

Shining constellations performing lively visual symphonies


Last night I danced with the moon

Unknowing of whether or not it was a dream

Yet it’s realness was challenging life itself

Begging me to run away from the realities the sunlit morning brings


I want to lose myself once again

In a dream not masked by sleep.

Mind-blowing! Especially the last 2 lines, they have a very strong layer of wish icing them!

I liked the above lines. To dance with the moon isn't a bad dream. Thank you Kailani for sharing the amazing poetry.
