Night and Day

Stay awake, away from sleep.
Everything is beautiful at five,
But gotta get past three.

Feel the night eat into me.
Fight off sleep.
The past is friend to me.
The soundtrack to old misery keeps me company.

Heart in my mouth.
Body tingles.
Today is over;
Tomorrow can wait.

Sleep calls with the promise of
Better days,
Better nights.
It lies.

New fears add to old.
Nothing ever gets resolved.
Wonder why I feel this way,
Why no soul is up too
To help hold back the day.
