I've been staring at the slivers of light that seeped through the cracks between the blinds
They dance around on my bedroom walls
I'm no closer to sleep than I was when I first laid my head on the pillow
Every second of the day is running through my head
Every image is brighter
Every sound is louder
Why do I talk like that?
Can someone drown in their own thoughts?
The sound of cars driving outside my bedroom window is soothing
There is life outside of my own - that's nice
I am not alone
His snoring is teasing me
How do people fall asleep so fast?
I only have three hours left
How is it so late ?
My eyelids are dropping
I could sleep
My eyes are closed but I can still see
I see everything better when my eyes are closed
I'm still awake
My thoughts are floating above me
My eyes are open again
When did I open my eyes?
Two hours left of sleep
The slivers of light aren't dancing anymore
The sun is back
The birds are awake
Nighttime is gone
