Night Thoughts

Time goes quickly, they say

Except when you're sat up

In the middle of the night

When the world is so quiet

every noise gives a fright.

This is the time that s-l-o-w-s down,

when your brain starts to click

and starts to think

and memories appear

every time you blink.

This is the time that you remember

The mistakes and regrets you

made in your life

the hurt you've felt and dealt out

all rushes in and stabs like a knife.

And as you watch time tick on the clock

you wish for everything that your mind

would. Just. Stop.

For this is the past you do not wish to see

All you want is for your eyes to shut and to leave the past be.

The End
