Nightfall: A Poem


Erin is a writer and content creator from Georgia, United States. She loves coffee, books, and puppies.




But my thoughts are loud,

Wrestling with the past and near future,

I toss and turn in the shadows,

Waiting for the sweet release of sleep,

But it doesn't come,

I'm too focused on me,

I can't see the starry lights in the darkened sky,

Or the milky way, Or the universe filled with galaxies upon galaxies,

As my thoughts finally turn to You,

I take my eyes off my small problems,

They seem tiny next to your size,

So, I surrender all my worries and troubles,

As I drift off into a deep sleep.
