At two a.m.


At two a.m.
the sky is patent black
and I stand at the center of all my mistakes.

  5. Banishment of such thoughts at night, that’s what works best. Better to examine those mistakes in the cold light of day, after a decent sleep. There’s nothing can be done about them at two a.m., when they’re liable to inflate themselves out of all proportion.

  6. Dave,
    No better time for an examination of one’s conscience. The next surise offers an opportunity to amend one’s ways. And in so doing the next 2AM wakeup call may simply be a turning over to your other side, free of regrets.

  7. That’s exactly why I go to sleep well after midnight. Can’t hear the two a.m. wakeup call.

  8. Lovely. At 2 a.m. in MY world, I’m struggling to fall asleep because I have to get up in 4 hours…
