The Worrier

Why is it that

at 3 a.m.

all the things

which I can do


nothing about

sneak into my pillow case

wrap around my calves

like twisted sheets –

a linen noose


I wish I could bring my sleeping bag

into your room

and close my eyes

on the floor

next to the foot

of your bed

because that is where I always

slept the best.

  1. Whoa…are we on the same page.

    I was just woken up by my little man’s coughing, only to then continue on with my usual journey of endless thoughts and worries.

    After reading about your “3 am”, I glanced at the time, and wouldn’t you know it, 2:57 am.
