for whom the sun rises

credit:げみ
i could not sleep,
lying awake
crying without
a reason's sake.

"who needs to sleep?"
i thought to say.
"i do", i said,
"to live the day."

i'm no stranger
to sleepless nights;
but i cannot
keep up the fight.

it's 6 a.m.
i've yet to sleep.
the sun must rise.
i gently weep.
