Another Sleepless Night

by Live WeLL

I hate the waking moments as I'm laying in my bed,
with endless thoughts and memories spinning in my head.
I mistake every sound for the ring of my phone,
but the silence just reminds me that I am all alone.

Where did I go wrong? If I could, what would I fix?
My mind won't put it past me, but the time just goes and ticks.
When will it be my turn to smile and get what's mine?
Why does everyone around me get their time to shine?

I toss and turn for hours, just hoping for a break
for sleep to overpower me and numb me from this ache.
But hours pass, I'm wide awake.. and you're still on my mind
just waiting for another chance, a sign of any kind.

Nothing happens yet again, and tears they fill my face,
as in your heart.. for me i dream that you will make a place.
Finally, I drift asleep and pray I'll be alright,
with strength I need to get me thru another sleepless night.

Wow, it was amazing!!!! wonderful job.. I can personally relate to in and that just made it even better to me...Everything just flowed so smoothly and was pieced together so great! The title did give it away a little but for how great the poem was it just completly surpassed that. Great great job 5/5

Ok i think everyone can relate to this because everyone has been or will be broken like that and the vulnerability you show well you seem to capture but a minute in time the moment each nighth when you think how they really are the most beautiful scene when someone is broken and you captured it amazingly
