DAY 13 #POEMADAY: Middle of the Night by Shippy




I woke up in the middle of the night,

Feeling hungry at 2 o clock,

went downstairs, not a soul in sight,

in the warmth of my pyjamas, slippers and socks,

Opened up the fridge, grabbed a snack to bite,

sat down in front of my TV,

Switched over to watch the boxing fight,

just the heater, the match, and me.

I realised the life I live,

Such happiness, that is for sure,

Wondering how, I can also give,

for that I do not know,

Morning came, the sun rose,

beaming into my room,

as the sweat poured gently from my nose,

Summer had come, I assume.

I guess it was a day for the pool,

shorts and sunglasses on,

only the ice cream keeping me cool,

Worries? Concerns? None.

But then reality hit...

I woke up in the middle of the night,

Realised it was all a dream,

Laying out in the cold just did not feel right,

Life was not as it seemed.

This is my life, This is the way, that I guess it has to be,

I go through this every single day,

just I, Myself... and me.

Maybe one day I'll wake up in the middle of the night,

and notice I have a friend,

Maybe one day I'll feel alright,

maybe happiness will be the end.
