when everyone's asleep

by chandelier   Jul 4, 2017

I like the strange silence
that engulfs you in the middle of the night
when no one else is awake
you can hear the heart
playing a soothing tune you've never heard
you can feel each cell oozing out of your body
drifting around like little fireflies
projecting your racing thoughts on a filmstrip
right in front of your eyes
the little dreams, the little memories
caged in the glass jars of reality
are set free
and they dance
dance to the rythm of your soul
the untouched smiles and wishes
pop out of nowhere but you
lighting up the whole room
like little lamps of hope
and somehow, suddenly
the demons in your head aren't frightening anymore
