Ode to Sleep


02/02/16
I called last night to relieve my separation anxiety from you,
and you were busy which is nothing new,
did you stop to think WHY I called out of the blue?
If you didn't know then, that was your cue,
or did you forget that I have really bad anxiety too?
I went to sleep anxious,
I woke up anxious,
I'm slowly and surely starting to lose you and my patience.
Your face haunted my dreams every time I awakened,
it felt as if you left me there in my bed forsaken,
and your face kept haunting my dreams every time I awakened,
and as I lay there I couldn't help but feel forsaken,
in a blink of an eye you were there and gone in a second.
I can't help it and it's so unfair,
sometimes I selfishly wish that I didn't have to care,
the pain of your absence I just cannot seem to bare,
I sadly shut my eyes and braced myself for the tears,
it was the only way I could make my anxious thoughts disappear.
I called last night to relieve my separation anxiety from you,
and you were busy, which is nothing new.
