So Long

Aerial photograph of falls
How did the night last so long?

I fell asleep easily.
I dreamt of gleaming hills.
I dreamt of a great wide ocean.

My dreams began to fade in the darkness.
I built up my longing and desire.
I urgently needed a new day to come.
I waited restlessly as hours passed.

I felt I was buried by a falling sky.
Its force was a startling attack.
Without patience, I only saw the problems.
