Night Back Home

The vividness of the silent dark—
After light
After noise
After distraction—
Glimpsed as the door to the outside world slams itself shut.

The stillness of an empty place—
After traffic
After stress
After confusion—
Refuge for a tired mind when the day has screeched to a halt.

The coolness of a lonely bed—
Nobody
But yourself
Disturbing your sleep—
Distant dreams the one piece of satisfaction that won't come.
