3 a.m.


It’s 3 a.m. and my body is awake
but my mind is dreaming
of ways to escape–
Escape these feelings
that have caged me inside,
that have slowly stolen
any hope I ever had.

So I’m left, lying here
in a prison
of pillows and sheets,
surrounded by comfort
that I can’t seem to reach.

      1. Would you be willing to describe your bedtime routine? Are there lots of electrical items in your room? What’s the temperature like? What do you do before you go to bed?
