Say I’m worthy enough to sleep
In this moment I don’t believe it,
Dogs outside on full alert
Scarce lightning and this neighborhood seems cursed,
Meanwhile I’m me feeling guilty
Swearing I’m missing a book worth of things I shouldn’t be
Am I supposed to be dancing around rooms
Whispering love songs to a dead broom
Claiming I’m on the right track feeling positive feedback,
Say I can lay down and rest
Tired and feeling slippery describes these hands surely something has been missed
Moments far from comfort far from walking blissed.
Ants are worry under these sheets
Preventing peace of mind and sleep oh no
Wish my heartbeat would slow
Wish I’d let this day go.
