I really should go to sleep
Staying up late into the night
Has never once helped me.
About this time is when I start
My darkest secrets and my weakness.
I really should just lay back and close my eyes
Not listen to the voices that
sing there strange lullaby.
Twisting words into a song
behind my ears,
Rhyming pretty words with my worst fears.
I should just shut this thing,
let the clicking of the keys fade away
welcome the night and whatever sights
My eyes though refuse to succumb
and though my body is growing numb
my mind races with little tales
happy endings and things of the sort
I know could never be real.
I really should just go to sleep
Staying up late
Never works out anyway…
