People of the Night

People of the Night

A Poem by Willard Wells
"

Looking for sleep

"

 Laying in the dark.

Thoughts racing down

the hallways of my mind.

 

Looking for sleep

to end this day.

attempting to escape the noise.

 

The darkness before my eyes,

gives me pause.

Realizing I am not alone.

 

But one of the many,

People of the night.

the hallways of my mind." Great line!

Sleep is a truly beautiful thing, but like everything else, we never know what we got till we loose it. Tyfs!

night can seem so lonely and isolating, especially when sleep does not come easily, but whether it's one's own thoughts or the single light seen in another house, one is not alone as they may feel

This has the feel of desperately seeking that tranquil place called sleep. Indeed it is some small comfort to know we are not alone in our struggles Wilard.
