It’s not that lonely at 3 am

Catching myself in between two realities

The world of the living

The world where alarms go off at 8 am

and eyes are shut by 11 pm

But then there’s a world beyond this

A world where eyes are opened at 11 pm and

eyes are shut by 8 am

Living within these two realities isn’t all that bad

Looking past the exhaustion and headaches

I see how beautiful the silence is

How loud the silence can be

How bright the dark can shine

and how comforting the night can be
