Back To Sleep

I may never say it,

But some days I dread waking up.

I would never tell you,

But some days I want to hide under my sea of blankets and pillows.

It might be wrong to admit,

But some days I wish I could go back to sleep.

 

Some days I wait for Night to visit me again.

Some days I fear he will never show up.

Some days I wonder why the end of a day can feel better than the start.

Some days I wish I didn’t feel the pressure of daytime.

 

Some days I let it get the best of me.

Some days I feel like a helpless bystander.

Some days I know that I’m not always wanted.

Some days I remember what I don’t want to.

 

Even though I may never say it,

Some days I lay in bed a little longer.

Even though I would never tell you,

Some days I shut my eyes a little tighter.

Even though it might be wrong to admit,

Some days I pretend that it is time to sleep again.
