Insomnia


The day after he leaves
I dream of the end of the world

where nothing remains.

I see the world collapsing into itself,

just like I will.

I run, screaming his name
but I never find him,
night after night

the night terrors reign.

My parents ignore my screams
just another nightly routine.

Insomnia lingers in the air I breathe.

Every night is just a new way to see
everyone I love die before me


and it all starts after he leaves.
