~Luara Moncur

I go to bed in darkness because that's all I know,
I lay awake for hours and let my mind wander wherever it wants to go.
It goes like this every night until I fall asleep,
I'll lay there for what seems like ever without making a peep.
I awake to see sunlight yet it still seems so dark,
It's like I'm in a fog and the suns just a spark.
I know it's warm around me yet I'm shivering from the cold-
Shivering from the cold because I'm standing all alone.

I lay awake for hours upon hours with thoughts upon thoughts...sometimes all I want is peace. This is just something that wrote itself in my mind one night when I couldn't go to bed.
