Shhh

I like to stay up late

So that I can pretend

That life only moves as fast

As the clouds over the moon

 

So that seconds become the time

Between cricket chirps

Or lightning bug thunder

 

So that every inhale breaks the silence

Of locked doors

Of closed eyes

Of keeping this beautiful secret
