Leave The Light On

Leave the lights on if you’re not ready yet to dream
leave the lights on if the night urges you to scream
leave the lights on if that thought is still spinning through your head
or surfacing your subconscious like the Louisiana dead.

Housecats bite like panthers when you fumble them at night,
and midnight thoughts are lonely even in the warmest light
The sleet is tapping on the shingles and your dreams begin to whorl
Leave the light on, leave the light on, and let the ceiling twirl.
