Life

Lately, this is how it is.

These days

I haven’t been sleeping

And I can’t tell why

But 3 am seems to know me more than I ever could

The thoughts that flood through my mind in the lonely hours

Are the cruelest

I feel as though I am in the middle of loving who I am

And tearing myself apart

At the same exact time

Lately

I keep forgetting to eat well

Or at all

And I can’t tell why

But maybe it’s because I’m trying to empty out my stomach

Of all the love

And all the pain

You caused me

Lately

This is how it is

Lately

All I do is think

And not think

And think

And not think, again

I don’t know where I’m going

Or if there is a certain path I’m supposed to be taking

But here I am

At 3 am

Writing

I’m not quite sure if spilling my poetry is helping

Or hurting me more

But maybe if I whisper the voices aching to be heard

Onto this page

My delicate soul

Can somehow feel some sign of relief
