Tonight


It’s alright,
shut your eyes,
you can’t figure it all out
tonight,

so stop trying to
stay awake.

Stop all that
tossing
and
turning,
all your
pushing
and your
pulling,

you don’t
have to
do that
here.

You think
you can be beaten
into shape,
that you can
bleed
deeper colours
with a
deep
enough
cut,
that you can
stop
a beating heart
from learning
how to
break.

You think
there is
rhyme
or
reason
to the way
you feel?

You may be right
but go to bed,
shut your eyes,

and trust me,

you won’t figure it out
tonight.
