Just For This Night

It has all just changed, my mind; no longer deranged...
Emotionally stuck in a limbo between the wrong and right,
Just cool, calm and plain, no longer astranged or insane,
Along with which there is less pain, but is this hope in sight?
That is still to be debated, but I think this frivilous fight...
Will take a rest, if not forever, then just for this night...

No more drastic measures? And holding on to wicked treasures?
That I do not know, but at the tunnel end there may be a light,
To think, that after all these days, I may have wandered out of the maze
And rectified my ways, to finally reduce my blistering blight.
And the troubles constantly pushing all my might...
Will take a rest, if not forever, then just for this night...

But I still feel like I'm in a sea, the water is the question 'Should I be? '
But with my troubled past, that doesn't come across as a fright,
All the days of constant bad, drifiting sorrow; always bad,
And now I feel, almost glad, that this may be an end in sight...
But I've been fooled before...But these tricks of misleading right...
Will take a rest, if not forever, then just for this night...
