Night Fills Me With Relief

Poetic Trials

Night fills me with relief
The shadows stretch along the street
And I am surrounded by black
I am able to hide
In the middle of the sidewalk
As the world bends and moves
Around me
I have a moment to breathe
At night, I am invisible
To reaching hands and swarming crowds
I can stop and let the days
Seep into my bloodstream
And allow the memories
To settle upon my tongue
Night fills me with relief
And I am able to whisper
My own name
