Town’s End

time for bed
and so i go
but do i sleep
oh no

i lie there awake
tossing
turning
reading
learning

and i hold out the light, like hope
and say to myself this is important
this is what i need to do.  the light
burning on in the night

but no
its the fear
i ignore
for even though
it’s only four
and the sun won’t set
for hours more

if i close my eyes
the darkness is there
i bring it with me
always
