And through the darkness that sorounds me,
one simple rhyme is what confounds me,
drawing out this maddened need,
as with intent I do proceed,
my hands work with thier simple chores,
and to an end i'm searching for,
the quiet is my only friend
this empty room the means to an end,
And as these lines are formed in mind,
the peace within does sooth, is kind,
and after this I go to rest,
hoping i have done my best,
for after all it's hard to tell,
when you can't sleep
and your tired as hell.

Nice work
Nice poem. I can sure relate. These are pretty much the same thoughts I have when I'm working through the night, especially when I take a break and walk up and down the empty streets in the dark and quiet. You've done a good job of conveying that state of mind.
