Night Sprites

My eyes flicker open in lazy surrender

The shadows dance on the wall

Thoughts disappearΒ  as I try to remember

If that really happened at all

 

The shadows dance on the wall

They play on my fears and doubts

If that really happened at all

My brain never working it out

 

They play on my fears and doubts

Those mischievous sprites in the night

My brain never working it out

So I snooze in the gaze of the light
