Nightlight On

 

Nightlight On (Randyjw; March 3, 2017)

 

In the last days

alone at night

lying awake

and staring up

shadows dark

and frightening

flit the ceiling

taking flight

Tonight

as I drifted off

to la-la-land

my phone in hand

I saw a light

it’s color white

and sighed relief

I’d found my peace

And, wouldn’t you know…

All it seems

is that it’s the ambient beam

emitted by the glow

of the telephone screen!
