I shut the drapes during the day

It’s dark, It’s night

I open the drapes during the night

It’s dark, It’s time to look outside


Every day feels as though clocks stop ticking

Every night I feel more restless, but empty at the same time

I close my eyes, prepared to go to sleep

While waiting for the next day to begin


As I wake up, I feel anxious

I spend my day in a form of anteroom

Waiting indolent, fearing

My bravery slowly fading


I shut the drapes again

It’s dark, It’s night

I close my eyes, hoping to see something soothing when I open them again

I know I probably won’t, so I just keep them closed
