Another Night

Nightly distractions
A reason to not turn off the light
Is there something in the darkness
That pushes me away?
I love to sleep
But for the slipping away…

I yearn for the peace of oblivion
The quiet sigh of a closing eye
To let go without surrender
To be free and at peace with the night.
