Insomnia

Sleep evades me
The clock reads, 3:16 a.m.
You ask me why I am still up
I tell you, I just can’t sleep
This is only half true
I’ve been awake
Thinking of you

Try to strike conversation
Ask me how I’ve been
I say I’m good
You say you’re drunk
On a Tuesday night?
I could have guessed

Your words mean nothing to me
With that poison in your system
So try texting
When you are sober
