I haven’t been sleeping well

Tossing and turning

Hurting most when I close my eyes

And see your face taunting me

Haunting me like a ghost

Who doesn’t have anywhere else to go

I wish you would go


My mid-morning coffee break only makes me miss you

Wish you were the one coursing through my veins

I hate missing you

And it comes in waves

Some barely caressing the shore line

Others drowning me in sorrow



Is another day

And I pray that when I wake

My reality isn’t this nightmare I’ve been living

I’ve been so forgiving

But karma is the biggest bitch of all
