I lay awake at night

When I’m supposed to be asleep and

As I lay awake

I think about what could have been

What is, and what will be

As I lay awake at night

All I see is you and

Those bright blue eyes, which

light up my day

When I have lost hope, when I feel

Like no day could get

Any darker

As I lay awake at night

I wonder about how you always seem to

Have your back to me

When I want you to look me in my eyes

Give me a kiss, you know

Express how you really feel

About me, and show the world

That you can like someone different

Someone like me

As I lay awake at night

My heart aches at the fact

That you and I will forever be

Just as we are now-

Friends and nothing more

The pain, oh the pain

As I lay asleep at night

I dream about you

And for once,

Everything is exactly the way

I want it to be

Then it all disappears and my eyes open

Oh, how I hate dreams

Because they give me a false sense of reality

They mess with my mind,

They remind me of what could have been

What is, and what will be

As if they thought I had forgotten

Over night

I wish, oh I wish

It were that easy

to forget that you and I

will never be

just you and me

I found your poem really intersting. Keep it up.

Suggestions: maybe add a hook at the end.

Keep it up and this was awesome
