i sleep with my glasses on.
some times, i keep my jeans on too.
the tv’s sleep gets set for 30
on my bed, computer parts, a remote,
my towel, three pillows.
a monkey sleeps next to me.
pepsi cans scatter my desk.
a hardly opened calculus book hides in the corner.
a trash can overflows.
empty boxes full of peanuts

i sleep with my computer on.
the sound of fans fill the air.
blues and reds dance together
a lone car speeds past my window
the echoes bounce on my empty walls.
did i say my goodbyes?

i sleep with my lights on,
in hopes that it’ll stop time.
day peeks through my windows.
fear creeps into my heart.
too much to do, too little done
too late to worry about tomorrow.
