I woke up at 2:30,
My eyes slowly taking in the soft glow from the street lamp outside of my window.
I listened to my breathing
My heart skipped a beat.
I don’t know why.
Or maybe I do, deep inside,
But I ignore the reason.
The same as I ignore the slight chill
That settles on my naked torso,
Where I pushed the covers away in my sleep.
I roll on my back, shutting my eyes,
But the room just starts spinning.
I haven’t been able to sleep since.
Lying awake at 3am.
