Running In The Moonlight

Sitting high upon a rocky hill

In the frigid cool spring air

I set my eyes upon a sunset

I feel the wind blow in my hair

The calming silence holds me tight

As I embrace the coming of the night

My mind drifts off in visions

Where I run towards the light

With the moonlight to the rear of me

It gives me such a fright

Every ounce of who I am

Loves this life too much

To fall asleep

Just to have a set of dreams

Which in the morn

I cannot keep

Yet, no matter what I do

No matter

How I can resist

The night always finds a way

To continually persist

So I close my eyes

With hesitation

As I warm my heart

To relaxation

I’ve always loved my dreams

Just haven’t remembered one

In years

They pass me by

So silently unless

Ingrained by fears or tears

So, now my sleep is emptiness

In an all consuming void

My breathe of life

Momentarily

By sleeping’s been destroyed

I’ll awake again tomorrow

Excited to see the world outdoors

The rising of the sun

Where orange and purple

Rays will pour

To mark the day’s begun

And that life has been restored

Sixteen hours to go

Until I break once more

With everything I know

For the sleeping I abhor
