the night.


And when the night comes
And the moon fights the sun
And the stars battle clouds
And the demons kill sleep
And the chaos destroys peace

I will dream of
The night without pain
The night tranquil and still
The night safe from harm
The night I slept in your arms

    I like the image of two opposing forces at odds with one another. That’s just how it feels sometimes: a battle. xo

    This is a beautiful dream. I try to think about happy things when I can’t sleep because usually my mind is whirring with sh*t so late at night.
