i want to stay a little longer.

I wake up before the sun

has enveloped the world beneath it.

It is quiet, and there is only one

creature awake.

I am alone,

yet it is a different feeling from


the loneliness I feel once the sun comes out.

I am content.


The wind plants soft kisses

on every inch of my bare skin.

The beautiful hush soothes

my mind.

The chaos is still asleep.

My thoughts are unusually dormant.

It is just me and the absent sun.


for that moment,

being awake doesn’t seem so bad.
