dark purple
under my eyes
not a surprise
i wish i was warm
i'll get swallowed by the swarm
i've been deprived
of sleep at night
i've been deprived
of you holding me tight
Anastasia Jul 9
I yearn to rest my eyes
Blanket them with my lids
Sleep deprived
I miss the night
I'm tired
And I know you are, too
Bloop poems May 12
I'm awake
Wide awake at 12 in the morning
Ready for my eyes to be heavy with sleep, but instead my eyes are heavy with tears

While my family is sleeping in the bed next to mine

I lay still and empty of life as not to wake them at 12 in the morning, when the world itself is not even up yet
I can't sleep to much on my mind and not enough energy in place to turn down the voices in my head that are keeping me up past time to be sleeping. Have a good night or day depending on where you are and hopefully you get enough sleep❤

With an angsty sigh and shuffled movements,
Shoes seemingly lined with cement.
There’s a longing to be with the one I love,
My very warm and comfortable bed.

i miss the feeling
of teeth rolling
in my mouth
blood, liquid, red
tongue to metal
doesn’t mean i want
your fist in my jaw
doesn’t mean i want
to taste your blood
just means
i want to taste something other
than the same tastes
the same teeth
the same tongue

while I shove sleep
      to the dark corner
i slip more
hard caffeine
through my blooded canals
and ponder


the cotton cloth'd
and pastel'd world
now opens up
before me
sleep deprivation and a new relationship make for strange bedfellows
ok okay Mar 17
Sleep deprived
My mind is telling lies
Or is it
I cant decide
A problem is created
A solution is decided
Until the next day
The loop abides
Arduino Mar 11
The birds are chirping
The sun is rising
Yet my eyes have not set
I don't know, I wouldn't listen to me right now
