2am

The loudest quiet ever is 2am.
When you’re lying there;
eyes squeezed shut, wishing
the phone would ring. Wishing
you were not in bed alone. Wishing
2am was not so loud that it kept keeping you awake.

The brightest darkness occurs at 2am.
When dazzling light appears;
from behind your eyelids shining
so brightly you can’t sleep. Shining
the dull façade of heartache. Shining
the dark of night to the glare of noon, keeping you awake.

The most enthusiastic sadness happens at 2am.
When despair captures you;
and visits upon you its willing
victim, tears and fears. Willing
you to wallow in sorrow. Willing
you to relinquish optimism and hope while keeping you awake.

Hold on…with the morning comes renewal.

Brava! Brava! Forget leaving comments. I'm going to call you (to make up for not calling last night.)

LOL Just kidding. Don't want to start any rumours. But this is a genuinely intense piece of writing.

Peace and Love,

"enthusiastic sadness" - Such Descriptive combinations! As others have stated - most of us can indeed relate.
