Another 4 a.m


Here we are again

Long past midnight,

Stars are finally vanishing from sight

Dark velvety sky turning  shades of orange and blue

As the sun rises

I don’t.

I have been here since 11 pm

On the side of the bed

Waiting. 
Even as a young girl, 

There were many nights like this

I suppose it comes from living in fiction 

Spending days, weeks,months in other worlds

So when I turn off the lights, am settled in bed

It seems impossible to turn off my brain

And to drift into slumber.
Now here I am 

Watching another morning dawn

Without relief.
