Closed for the Night

by LJ Chaplin 3 years ago in sad poetry

"Curled up in a ball..."

Closed for the Night

Curled up in a ball

To close the space between

My body and the Universe,

Pull the sheets above my head,

To block out the Sun,

And let the light disperse.

Wait until the stars arrive,

Before I walk through rooms,

A passing ghost that is out of sight,

Listen to the silence of the walls,

And the stillness in the air,

It is calm when the World is closed for the night.
