Some nights, you are not tucked under the blanket of sleep
And once you've blinked its intoxication from your eyes
Once you've heard past the noises of the world,
Right into the silence
You catch glimpses of that world
The world you could almost be living in
The world that you long to be a part of, unknowingly
For it is found in the fragile balance of emptiness between your breaths
Between the mechanism of your existence
If your heart stills, does it mean you are dead?
Or is it peace?
Or are they one and the same?
But if they are, then still your heart, you will know.
Steal those moments, beyond sleep
Where this world shares borders with the other one
And maybe, the gears of life will once again run
For a while, without the stress
You always know, how to trap happiness between moments
The moon showed me the secret
Sleep stayed at the threshold for me, smiling.
