You’ve gone from asking ‘How’d you sleep’
to ‘did you sleep’
and the answer of course is always

‘What is this sleep you speak of?’

I joke, we laugh
but you look at me curiously
as if something might be wrong

‘Your eyes look darker’

There’s a pause
‘Well my hair is lighter, might be that’
I toss a rock and it skips along the water
It’s circulating footprints slowly disappearing from sight

‘You look really tired, you should sleep’

Avoiding his gaze
I shrug as if to say

‘eh I’m okay’

But I can’t fool you much longer
I’m growing weaker
lifeless
and soon you’ll find out that…
well…

I was never okay

Jesus...my "record" is 10 days plus some hours.  Take something for yourself, benadryl, whatever you need to.  Just sleep.  Whatever's it is in your head that's causing this, you don't have to let it continue.  You're so young and beautiful...run away.

If you want to talk openly and honestly to someone who has been through it all (and I say that with little pride), just send me a note.

Why I have the feeling that you are a person who always go to the wrong way...

I hope that when you find the right way, not be too late...
