Four a.m.
Bathroom floor 
Tears slip through
Painting constellations
on the cobwebs in your eyes 

Never thought you’d
miss the days you used 
to sleep to escape reality

They’re there the second 
you close your eyes 
Waiting to pull you through 
to the other side 

In a neither here
nor there state
You hear them calling 
They sing you a lullaby 
Hoping you fade out 

Lately it’s been the same 
The man of your dreams
or a cold sweat and screams

You take your chances 
Hoping fatigue wins 
the fight and sinks in

Close your eyes 
Let them pull you through 
Maybe he’ll come rescue you 

He’s worth every nightmare
