I'm in love with my bed, but my alarm clock won't let us be together

I'm in love with my bed,
but my alarm clock won't let us be together.
My bed is there no matter the weather.
All my alarm clock does is ring in my head.
At the end of the day,
my bed is warm and welcoming.
It makes me feel safe when I'm sleeping,
but the clock is counting down the minutes till we have to go our separate ways.
My bed and I have a sort of intimacy.
It's always there
and leaves me feeling like I'm floating in air.
But that clock is full of jealousy.
This feud will go on forever.
I'm in love with my bed, but my alarm clock won't let us be together.

Oh man, is this relatable or what? I go through this every morning and every time the homework starts calling. Maybe the narrator needs to get involved in life so she doesn't dread getting up and can be in the moment with her bed, not dreading the alarm clock and all it's symbolism. Best of both worlds, eh? :) This is well written. Give your alarm clock a kick for me.
