nights

(inspired by my best friend)


nights
when
I can't sleep
when
I just toss and turn
when
My mind is occupied

nights
when
I remember
when
Everything I've ever done
when
I was younger comes to mind

nights
when
I recall
when
we stayed up texting too late
when
we gushed about crushes

nights
when
you became my best friend
when
you became my kindred spirit
when
this all happened talking over the phone


nights
pass by
and during the day
I
miss you
I
feel like half of me is not there

nights
when
I don't sleep
pass by
and
I—
All I need 
to survive
is love
and food
and water
to get me by
