Dear Sleep, It Hurts Awake

…and the ache
inside
the one keeping me awake at night
leaves me in a constant state
of pining
so i always look forward
to returning
to you

  1. Sadly enough, your poem is quite relatable… the ache is real, but what can you do.
    Beautifully written

    your poem reminded me of the lyrics from somewhere:
    “I push my fingers into my eyes
    It’s the only thing that slowly stops the ache…”
