Free Thinking-Part Two

Standing outside
     The cool wind makes me shiver
     The darkness envelopes me
     The clouds make the shadows flicker
          The night gets deeper.
I close my eyes
     I smell the rain in the air
     I smell the damp grass
     I smell new construction
          The night is fuller.
I walk slowly
     The fatigue makes me sway in place
     My entire form feels limp
     My mind tries to shut down.
          The night gets longer.
I stand still
     The birds have gone to bed
     The rabbits are all resting
     The dog is sound asleep
          The night continues on.
