the night comes fast, so fast it's hardly noticed.
the moon is bright but not as bright as the sun.
everything is silent. beautifully silent.
the silence chokes you, but you don't mind because as your suffocating, as you are dying, all you see is the night sky.
the beauty of it brings you peace as you slowly drift off into nothingness.
the stars and the moon the only witness of your disappearance.
the night's silence is just-
i want to so badly fall asleep but i can't. my bones try to relax into my bed, i shut my eyes but sleep doesn't come. i listen to the sound of my breath for hours.
the constant rise and fall of air escaping and coming to my lungs.
in the night's silence i bring myself here,
i don't sleep properly
but i haven't slept properly in a long time.
