Some say the sun was brighter that day,
But I beg to differ on that reasoning
Because the sun was never there,
As if it was hiding behind the moon
Like a lunar eclipse.
Awakening in the midst of darkness
It can be quite disturbing at first
Your eyes and mind playing tricks
Like the shadows upon the wall
Dancing around like Pan.
I must be in the twilight zone
Because all this seems so surreal –
One moment I am in a dream,
And the next I am in a void.
Am I an old man that sleeps all day?
The curse of being a night owl
I suppose, daybreak can wait
Because the darkness lingers here
In the cornea of my fragile eyes
As if there were no light at all.
