mom, I really can't sleep.

insomnia.

it's 10:19

slowly approaching

midnight

and I can't sleep

I want to

but I can't

you're on my mind

and it's not like I can

get out of bed

creep into your room

fake my nightmares to you

like I always used to do

so you'd protect me

even though you always knew

there were never any nightmares

just a young girl

wanting to be

her mother's baby

I'll never be able to

feel your warmth

hear your breath

poke your nose

see your silhouette

in the glow of the moon

our late night talks

are nothing but silence

Goodnight Mom

feels nothing but foreign

when I get a real nightmare

who will I go to

you were my air

but this nightmare's about you

and how you're not here

and now

it's 10:33

and I really

can't sleep
