Another 5 A.M. Poem

My emotion is tired

My emotions are tired

It’s 5am

And the reason why

I am still awake

Has gone to sleep

The reason why I

Am still here

Has left me.

 

Someone I know

Doesn’t know

How to sleep.

His night begins

At 4am

As everyone else’s

Draws to a close.

His night begins

With birdsong

Draped like fairy lights

Over a brilliant pale sky

And I can’t condition my eyes

To stop watching.

 

You don’t want to miss it.

 

Someone I know

Doesn’t know

How to sleep.

 

Tonight

I understand.
