It's 3am, but I don't want to go back to sleep.

Scared to stay awake. Scared to go to sleep. How pathetic is that?

There was rain today. I watched it out the motel room window for a while before walking out for a few minutes just to stand in the middle of it.

It came and went, little flash showers here and there. An hour or so before sunset there was just one patch of clouds, it looked like a mountain hanging by itself in the air, slowly floating by.

I watched as lightning danced around the top of it in bolts of orange light. Nothing went to the ground, just confined to the top.

It looked...playful. Like the lightning was chasing itself around the top. A bolt here. A flash there as it drifted off.

Light amongst the darkness.

It was nice.

I'm tired.

I don't want to go to sleep.
