In the calm of the night when the world sleeps
I find myself restless as the mind leaps
I try asking, even probe to look within
But all I get back is nothing, much to my chagrin
What is it that possesses my thoughts
Have tried to reason it out but always lost
Do I feel the need to speak but find my throat hoarse
Often wonder should I not let it be as the words will find their own course
Have tossed and turned through umpteen nights
But have never figured what are my plights
People tell me I should let go of whatever I’m thinking
So as to ease my mind and leave it resting
It makes me wonder and abandons me to pondering
There’s nothing for me to deliberate which furthers the baffling
I can’t shake the feeling of helplessness
Which comes upon me with the ache of wakefulness 
But something the night offers which the day cant
‘Tis this weary silence that touches the heart
In the quietness that surrounds, to the subconscious it travels
Caresses my innermost senses, cajoling them to unravel
Whispering tales, some secrets or even sharing its pain
Let’s me feel that my hours awake did not completely go in vain
My mind has come to rest, feeling afresh and renewed
Suddenly it dawns on me that it’s time for another night to bid adieu!

About moodsnmoments

Am a person with ambitions and dreams…though I try to keep a practical approach towards life at all times but in my hearts of heart…am a dreamer… Am just someone who can be described to be made of memories and phrases…someone who lives life in each day and in many phases!!!! Though am a people’s person, I enjoy my own space and often like to get lost in the throes of reading, music and movies. Travel, whether actually being able to do so or even to learn about new places, consumes me. Even in the darkest of hours, when things seem to be going haywire, the little voice within me never ever gives up on hope. A firm believer of ‘ask and you shall get it…but just ask’ is one which keeps me going!!!!

    Your structure and phraseology give this piece a lovely somnolent tone that makes enjoyable reading. Well done.
