The Things in the Night

 

There are certain things, which keep me up at night

These are the things, which make me shiver with regret

Unspoken assumptions

Retaliated with misspoken and misplaced words

Grappled with the fury of red

These are the things, which go bump in the night

A bruised fate and an un-walked destiny

Bursting with greatness

But remaining with self-doubt and uncertainty

 Until I am green in the face with the ordinary

These are the things, which creep in the night

Slowly walking up my bed sheets, silken my skin

But reminding me, I am all alone

Dreaming of adulterated love

Awakening broken hearted and reawakening to my courageous existence

Auspiciously mending the pieces -- back again

I am reminded of the things, which keep me up at night
