Why I Am Awake

Location

The darkness around can't get any darker

 

and the sound of my thoughts can't get any louder

 

while the world speeds up and my mind slows down

 

day is gone and night arises

 

but my mind, my thoughts won't go to sleep

 

to ask myself questions no one else would understand

 

to sing a song and dance and laugh

 

that is what night is like for me

 

bustling around as if the sun is still high in the sky, sometimes it won't shut up

 

i don't know why.
