a sleeping road
the jewels of the
When the sky turns black,
everything begins to sleep
until the sky spins red.
Everything is quiet
everything is gone,
only peace and quiet are still there
until the sky turns red.

What do they mean, the sounds of the night?
The outside of midnight is dark
Like the world is gone, as if it never
When I go to bed, sometimes I feel
Like I’m scared; the sounds are strange.
Each night is different. The cats do a meow
Sound, maybe because they are cold.
The sound of the wind is so slow,
And so quiet, but you can still hear it.
I hear what the outside carries, different
Sounds by the way the outside goes.
But when I wake up everything
Is like yesterday.
