He said, “good night” and I closed my eyes,

to another closed chapter.

For the world I was asleep, but

my mind was running in all directions,

impervious to sleep.

I tried to embrace my mind, to

suppress, repress a possible heartbreak,

But I let it run, run as far as it could,

for I knew by morning it would be back

in the Now.

In the morning, when I woke up,

my mind was sharp as ever,

with a pledge so solemn:

‘Let’s stay focused and kind,

but build walls of ice around me.’

I couldn’t help but smile,

how long could the Ice bear

the Fiery Glow within?
