Miles of Night

Written by Tara Rice

Miles of night
Where will they take me
If I let them roll under my feet?
The speed of thought
Turn the dark back on
Listen for what comes out of the stillness
I’m in a race against tears
Is that any reason to hide the light?

Miles of night
Move through black space
It’s the only right way left
Invite a trance
No shadows dance
Listen for what speaks from the stillness
In a race against tears
I wonder why I bother to wonder why?
What am I going to do with all these Miles of night?
