the other night

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.
