3 a.m

sleepless,
again,
how long has it been
since i was last caught in this trap?

headaches
and heart wrench
crawl through my bones
as my breathing becomes slower

then faster,
continuously faster,
until the tears well up
and i find myself wanting to scream

but,
as always,
i cannot
and i wait silently in this tomb

patiently hoping for sleep to come.
