I awake around three a.m.
The thunder roles. The lightning flashes. The rain pours.
I remember leaving my window open earlier that night
Quickly close it!
I prowl the house, is anyone awake?
A yawn. Some milk. Back into bed I crawl.
Sleep. That is all I need. Sleep.
Test tomorrow. Test.
All of a sudden it stops.
Everything stops. Peace once again
