THE LONG AND SHORT NIGHT

Anticipation for morning
and what it will bring,
at this moment
taunts excitement
that ruins everything

Sleep is suspended
by a working mind,
exhausting methods
to slow down and unwind

Possibilities race
around tracks built of promise,
as darting thoughts
sprint on paths
of composure upon us

Scenarios unfold
like new maps in lost hands,
clasping sluggish
fallen fragments
of astray slumber plans

In the end
this fatigue defeats you,
as the night before
becomes the day
you need to live through
