the other night

Avatar Author: soup i write stuff sometimes. Read Bio

the other night
after the lights went out
and before i fell asleep,
i felt the world leave me.

the other night,
laying alone in my head,
i did not hear a sound that mattered
i did not have a care.

the other night,
imagining you dancing,
i tried to join you
but was content with watching.

the other night,
as i felt myself drifting in to sleep
i promised i’d find you one day
and keep the lights on.

    That was cute. A bit of melancholy to it, but overall just reads like a bit of a bedtime love story.

    Yes, cute is right – lullaby-like, almost. Difficult not to like.
