try not to think

Tonight is sleepless,
I know.

My small, broken bed,
The unpredictable
click click click
Of my ceiling fan,
The thickness of the air-
All irrelevant.

try not to think

These thoughts are of no immediate importance,
I know.

Imagine building a wall,
Imagine locking a door,
Imagine running away.

The worries
Destroy,
Unlock,
Chase.

try not to think

My worries are keeping me hostage,
I know.

Where will I go to college STOP
Why can't I do better in math STOP
I never think before I speak STOP
It's only Monday STOP

try not to think

Tonight is sleepless,
I know.


Tomorrow will better,
I believe.

I hate when there are typos that just appear once something is published on the website, ie: canï¿Â½t.
