He wakes

What does he do with his nights
When he’s lost it all
Beyond free fall

What does he want to hear
When the sound of a note
No longer floats

Can he go through a single day
No thoughts concerned
No fires burn

Or will he endlessly long
For freedom of wings
For life to sing

A tune of joy
A tune of sorrow
Difficult to dream
With fear of tomorrow.

    Those lines from your fellow countrymen/women spring to mind:
    Somehow I’d be doing alright if it wasn’t for the nights
    If it wasn’t for the nights I think that I could make it…etc

    • The painful nights. I wonder how it would be if it were daylight all day? Would we experience the same feeling as we sometimes do with the rising of dawn or setting of sun?

      • Andy says:

        Oh I would hate it. That’s why I’m not a seeker of sunnier climes-I would miss the seasons too much. My favourite season is Winter-and my favourite time is twilight. That time at dusk that the Celts referred to as the time-between-time. There’d be none of that with constant day!

      • In the north of Sweden it’s light almost all day and night during the summer. During winter, it’s the opposite. But then you have the snow which lightens up a bit. I love the seasons as well but I’m definitely more of a sun-seeker 🙂

        Twice a year then we will pass each other, crossing hemispheres. You seeking the light, me the dark. Don’t forget to wave 🙂

      • Wouldn’t miss it for the world!

    nights can be sucky – i used to hate them and now i look forward to them in hopes to sleep.

    • Same here, it’s just that sometimes the sleep never comes 😦

      • words4jp says:

        i get that. these longs days of driving are wearing me out, but when school goes back into session and life returns to the abnormal normal that it is, i will not sleep. i think it is the fact I am too busy driving all of over the place and adhering to everyone’s schedule to think or feel lonely.

      • I think keeping busy is the key. That way you’re so exhausted at night time there’s no other alternative than to sleep. At least you’re not alone in your worries – we’re in this together, if that brings any comfort 🙂
