untitled 11/24/2009

It’s in the dark and quiet that things get scary-

Not because of the dark

Or the quiet,

But because

Of the lack of distraction

That serves as a cover

For all the thoughts

And fears

That always lurk

Just beneath

The surface.

Without the convenient

Veneer

Of just getting through

The day,

The complications

And the worries

Return

To stake their claim

To my time.

It is in the dark

That the fatigue sets in

And the quiet

Of tiredness

Cracks

Through.
