Rictameter #3


Night falls,
Nature retires,
Insomniacs prepare
For silent, lonely hours ahead,
Acceptant of their sad, nocturnal plight,
Though always wishing otherwise
That, like fam’ly and friends,
They can smile when –
Night falls!

  10. Ah yes, as one of those frequent insomniacs, I can frequently be found when the sky begins to lighten, Kindle in hand, reading. It is rather my accepted way to pass the nocturnal hours these days. But I do not mind so much, as it is time well spent. Perhaps I should give up drinking espresso at 11:00 p.m.? πŸ™‚
