three o’clock kisses

i am
so very tired
but i know
the span of
an evening
waking with
her name
on my lips

staring into
the darkness
wishing for
another minute
in dream
where her lips
are close enough
to taste

instead of the
hours laying
awake trying
to sleep
cursing my own
insomnial musings

i am just
so very tired
of waking to
the mocking
ceiling above

so very tired
yet aware
that tonight
will be the
exact same

at three
i will send
frantic kisses
begging for
sleep to come
lost in the
dark alone
