Until last night I had never been alone,
  never bereft of sleep

Until last night I had never been afraid,
  never afraid to dream

Until last night my thoughts were in stone,
  indecision a foreigner sure

Until last night my will had been staid,
  my conscience both steadfast and pure

 —until last night

(Villanova Pennsylvania: February, 2018)
