Hidden Adventure

It’s not something you can plan
It arrives at your door
Suddenly, unexpectedly

All you can do
Is answer the call
And your adventure begins

The day seems to revolve around it
You cannot stop thinking about it
Though nobody else can notice it

You carry your adventure
Hidden in your pocket
Indulging it when nobody is around

You anxiously wait for the night
When the true adventure happens
Turning pages until they fall on your face

The night becomes your day
The day becomes your night
Reality becomes dream

Heavy eyelids
Tired eyes
Smoky brain

But you cannot deny
How alive
You feel
