Don't Forget to Leave a Like

Tossing and turning and it’s 2:17 AM I
can’t sleep with sheets twisted around my limbs
stretching and grasping in the dark at the dark and it’s too hot
this pillow under my head I
turn it over 27 times
in an effort to find the cold side but
it’s no good one foot hanging out
over the edge of the bed
is cold I should just throw off these sheets
escape this hot tangled mess now
I’m cold and I
left the television screen
shining from the far wall and
it’s pulsing a painful beat into my eyes I
sit up and my head is pounding I
need to find the remote
turn it off turn off the light turn off the static turn off my mind I
clutch the remote and the glow flicks to black
matching the room
no light no sound that I’m not making
breathing
and my body doused in sweat
trickles like ice water
grab the sheets a moment
of comfort and now I’m back to being hot and
arms and legs extend again
in wasted effort and it’s 2:21 AM
