Nocturnal’s 3 AM

Often, at three in the morning,

The norm of the silence

Takes over my panicky mind

Like the adrenaline

Rushes through the superlative thoughts

And lands straight to the ultimate desire

*

I would do anything,

Talk for hours,

Listen to the Bahamas,

Sleep during the shower,

Touch myself without feeling guilty,

Hush or shush my inside crier!

*

You would draw contours and conclude, “Happiness?”

I would retort, “What’s that, Hmmm?”

The miracle of felicity scents in striving.

Let this just be a struggle and keep mum!

Then the dawn emanates the horrendous scream of the world

Now I would sleep, my friend, until you come!

The 22nd poem on the 24th day in the series of NaPoWriMo 2018 challenge.

The song of the day is Sooha Saha from a Hindi film Highway.

Are you nocturnal? If yes, then you might have related to what I explained in the morning. Let me know in the comment section what do you do at 3 AM if you are awake.
