When i can't go to sleep
i like to stare into the dark.
i don't have to close my eyes to see the shapes
and patterns dance.
Like a dancing troupe they perform for me nightly
- when i can't sleep.
i wonder what these visions reveal tonight?
It seems, as i get older,
it seems that those playful visions are fading
and now leaving me with only empty darkness
- when i can't go to sleep.
