It’s the sounds of night that revives our souls

It’s the sounds of night that revives our souls and awakens our minds
the sounds of stillness and silence
the faint sound of the clock ticking our lives away

as memories that have formed us flicker in our minds

Deep in the night there is no one to judge us
There is no one to laugh with
and
no one to shush your fears
Its just you.

Some fall asleep in the arms of a love,
some fall asleep in the arms of a mistress
Some fall asleep lonely in a bed.
Other cry themselves because of the pain
While others watch television to numb it

Not I, I wait for all the others to slumber,
I listen to the silence of the night,
to what is true, that there is only me
The world is not with me nor against me

I listen to the silence of the night
