while you were sleeping

While you were sleeping I walked outside. While you dreamed I sat under the sky and watched the dark fight for its space with the light. The light eventually won out and the moon and stars paled as black turned to blue.

While you were sleeping I made plans for when the sun came up while familiar monsters watched from the dark.

While you dreamed I watched the trees emerge from the night’s shadows and I watched the monsters disappear into the daylight.

I don’t know where they go every morning, but they always come back while you are sleeping.
