Search for meaning

As the night blankets the world,
and stars sing a lullaby,
insomnia’s heaven rises just right.

The world is quiet,
its silence- an elixir,
for the hungry spirits,
lost in the day – light.

Night’s stillness,
a refuge,
for the countless thoughts,
scattered away like pearls,
night sews them into the sky’s veil,
and lets them fly to infinite heights,
insomnia’s heaven rises just right.
