Ramblings After Midnight

while all around you seems to be standing still

tides continue to ebb and flow

the march of time 

unrelenting towards tomorrows unknown

when we knew no better

how did we walk and talk 

remember those wishes held inside

houses built into homes

hold us somehow different now

trappings seem invisible these days 

habits broken can set us free

moving too fast 

to appreciate the moments

is no longer our excuse

lists can be erased 

rewritten from a view 

often buried

by the fevered thoughts

standing in the moonlight or the sunshine 

what are we afraid of

if it’s too early or too late?

can you ever remember

it all spinning so slow

no longer dizzy

focus towards the promises on the shelf

there is a message in a bottle 

floating on the sea

on its way to you and me
