The following words are about a woman who ruined my sleep schedule.

I'm Tired but I Think I Slept Better

by LunaGrimm

If I didn't know any better,

I’d say that I loved the fact that I was losing sleep because of the way your hair smelled

Or that your fingers felt like silk rubbing against the rusted metal that was my body.

And that I loved how I was losing sleep because I was making sure you slept fine.

If I didn’t know any better, and I don’t think I do,

I’d say that I miss the nights when I slept because I didn’t have to climb back in and out of bed still thinking of you,

And the way your eyes were darting all over the sky as you tried to count every star in the ocean of the night.

Or the ways my rib cage wasn't caving in like the roof of a house after a storm.

If I didn’t know any better, I’d say that I’m tired

But I think I sleep better when you walk around my body, and not just in my head.

Because then I can just dream about certain things and not just-

You.

If I didn't know any better,

I’d say that I’m tired but I’ve been sleeping a lot better.
