Two A.M.

Two A.M.


It’s two AM, I think of you.

I flip to my stomach feeling blue.

I remember when you tucked me in like this

Hands that love me, a warm embrace.

I know the scent, a blurry face.

I feel like it’s the safest spot on earth.


It’s four AM, I think of you.

The feel of your body, next to me.

I open up and invite you in.

Your right to refuse me,

we can’t win,


I curl up and pray for love.

Someone listened after all.


I follow you in my mind,

always a step behind.

Jokes on me cause your not mine.

Reality is a force you can’t escape.


Tethered to a time and place.

My heart keeps beating, teasing me.

Makes me want to run away.

It hurts here, but here I stay.


I curl up and pray for love

Someone listened after all.


Jokes on me cause I can’t  be that strong.


It’s five AM, I write a song

Knowing that I’m very wrong.

Run away, find that face

Be happy that I’m stuck in place.


Time is up
