A poem for the challenge set by @hanniecakes10

Tonight

I was fooling around

Staying up late like all teenagers do

My final check,

Resulted in tears falling down my cheek.

I didn't notice they were there until they fell

I felt empty

I was about to go sleep

At 11:15

But, I didn't want to anymore

I stayed in my chair

Blankly staring

This was not okay

This was not good

I sat there for a long time

Barely remembering to read

I decided to sleep it off

But, that didn't work

I lay in bed

Staring at the clock

As it switched from 11:45 to 1:54

I couldn't stop trying to find out

How to fix me

I needed to be fixed

I was broken

I wasn't enough

I was a rouch draft in a sea full of finished papers

All perfection

I was far from perfection

I would never be enough

Never ever

Tonight was a sleepless night

Sleep would bring dreams,

I didn't feel like dreaming

Dreams aren't for me

They are not mine to have

I don't want to go through

A sea of happiness

I don't get nightmares,

I wish I did

I deserve nightmares

Not dreams

Help me

Please

I want somebody who's there for me

Someone who's there for me

I can't have someone

So, here I lay

Trying to fix myself

I'm less

Less than everybody else

I'm not tired

How can I be?

I'm worthless

Worthless

Worthless

Worthless

Help me

Now

Please

Save me

I just lay here

Not sleeping

Tonight
