Things on my mind before bed

Post Published: September 18, 2023

There were some things
on my mind
before bed,
like how
I’d rather ignore you
you make a move instead.

Like how I’m always lost
in a fantasy most days,
living 1/8 of my life
inside of my head.

Like how fate
can’t be quantified
but I know what I know,
and how I can never find
the right words,
or what my actions
don’t show.

And I spent a few moments
diving beneath,
into my own layers
to see
how far I could reach
and the pain was so much
that I couldn’t
soothe myself

For I hadn’t the touch.

And in my sleep I dreamt
of my efforts
to make amends and
at the end of it
I didn’t even get
any of the attention
that I’d wanted
so much.
