Considering the absence of any friends in my general area this Friday Night, I have taken it upon myself to make this night interesting. I just got back from a short evening on the town. I picked up a four-pack of Redbull on my way back. Tonight will be a night that I need. One where I fight my body, the urge to sleep, and come out the other side with a beautiful glimpse of the sunrise.
I wrote a short poem for everybody. It is linked below. I am going to spend tonight, editing my novel, writing memories, walking the dark streets around my neighborhood, and probably watching the movie “Brick.” I haven’t had a night like this in a while. I need it. I hope I last past 3:00am this time.
I wrote this shortly after wandering the roads of my new town. I remember doing the same thing in my hometown–traveling around like an explorer. Only this time, I was alone. The difference was immense.
