The night is the one I like most.
It feels safe and familiar
the darkness embracing me like an old friend
or a close relative who perfectly understands me
and my fucked-up brain.
In the depths of the night
I can dream anything, and make it real
I can forget the gravity and the fear of the day
and just be who I am
in pure potency
without judgement or consequence
Perhaps the night
with its fresh air
and distant rumblings
and peaceful nature
is the closest I will ever be
to being home.
Yes, the night is the one I like most
for only at night am I lost enough
to be wild and free
of society’s pains and ills
and quietly, calmly, at one with myself.
