nights

3 am comes and goes

i lay awake staring into the dark

no familiar snoring around, except the dog

nerves are mis-firing throughout my body and spasticity is taking over

 

holding my breath, the house is still

the three are all quite in their beds, no stirring

all cats and 1 dog too, all still, be still

how long do the nights last?

 

would it be this quiet if i wasn’t awake once again

listening, straining to hear her?

sleepy time tea does not bring slumber

i lay here waiting for 4am to come, then 5

 

night after night it is the same

will it ever end?
