Counterpart

If I sleep now
will a reason come
before the dawn
that might awaken me
or will I be left to drift
yet once again
upon the endless seas
of loneliness?

Sleep, perchance to dream
of yet another new tomorrow

or will the night
become another mare
black as pitch of darkest night
that races through eternity
and me?

How does life dare to be
within this darkness it creates?

Yet fear abates
for this reality of dark
could not exist
without the light of day

Counter and its counterpart
as days and night depart
sinking deep within each other
just as lovers always do
