Thoughts.

by Paper Lions

I like staying up at night.

I like the way the air feels cold and undisturbed.

I like the way the wind whispers as it passes by, telling stories of lovers bound to the shadows of darkness.

I like the way everything is still and peaceful.

I like the way the lights shine in the distance reminding me of lives I’ll never understand.

I like the way a thought that has been trapped inside your mind all day can finally escape the confines and make itself known.

I like the way each second ticks by slowly and with purpose.

I like the way freedom comes so naturally.

I like the way the blanket of black removes the distractions for just a little while.

I like the way the darkness hides the imperfections.

But mostly, I like the way the stars kiss the moon.

How lucky are they to dance with the light of hope.

How lucky are they to exist thousands of years ago but still be known today.

How lucky are they to posses beauty beyond words and life beyond understanding.

How lucky are they…

I like staying up at night.

Because nothing feels better than the freedom of darkness.
