Nights Like This

Every now and then

I have one of these nights

My mind doesn’t stir in worry

All awash in calm

Drinks aren’t too stiff

Smoke doesn’t linger too long

There is a warmth from a small fire

And a book to be lost in

Sleep come with relative ease

Heavy eyes give way

To simple thoughts of nothingness

A subtle tease which always leaves room for more

All dreams are at a slower pace

All are lucid and worth remembering

No panic, no chasing, no reason to run or hide

Guards can be let down

All awash in calm

For every once in a while

There are nights like this

Even demons need a night off

So I’ll take advantage

Giving way to a restful night

You float in the breeze

Hovering for me to see

Grasping, but always out of reach

Suspended, I flutter in an uncertain fate

Wanting, but never giving in

You spread like wildflowers

Take to the airs like smoke in wind

Here for a moment

Then, as quickly as you came

Gone for good
