12:00am - Close your bedroom door.
12:15am - Realize you're alone.
12:30am - Pick out the next day's clothes.
12:45am - Stare at your phone.

1:00am - Time to sleep.
1:15am - Thinking of you.
1:30am - You're face is what I see.
1:45am - Remember that time too?

2:00am - It's getting late.
2:15am - Fight back the urge to call.
2:30am - Is this really my fate?
2:45am - How hard did I fall?

3:00am - Over-thinking, thinking, thinking.
3:15am - Finally dreaming, wishing, sinking.

Absolutely amazing, this can really reach out to many teens out there and realize we have all felt this way at some point. Keep it up!

Nice! I like the way you use time, quarters of an hour, to describe something so well. Great job!
