Dreaming of Daybreak

Grinding tracks far off
Announce the final train is home
While shrieks of drink freed wit drift by
To signal nights fun done

Just out our sight
In the cold
Here dark windows echo sounds
Driven out from eternal roads

Within this place of note
Deep breathing
Clouds the night with sighs
Not hushed by talk
Or fear of streets alive with scraps and cries

Dreams grab eyeballs tight
Worn tired by taking it all in
Shaking fragile visions free
To let what comes tomorrow in.

Do dreams of flying
Race towards the sun before it breaks
What distances these flickering sleepers
Strive, so oft, to make?
