4:30 am

so this is what you’re up to

it’s become a routine

of the exhausting exhausted sort

you’ll lay on your bed at midnight

with a book in hand

the one you’ve been meaning to read

once you got the chance

and re-read the paragraph

you fell asleep on last night

only to fall asleep on it again

perhaps it’s easier this way

to black out into sleep

instead of that gradual

thinking about things

with your eyes closed

until the sun rose

if only you’d sleep now

all the way through

and not wake at 4:30 am

because a routine of this

for so many days

it’s exhausting

and you need rest
