12 A.M

Tick-tock Tick-tock Tick-tock A dark abyss between yesterday and today Between sunrise and sunset What a strange time to mark the end of a day and the beginning of a new one Most people are hidden under their covers Possibly lost in dreams Possibly snoring Possibly waking up to go to the bathroom Possibly staring […]
