3:00 a.m. Thoughts

written by: Karen Rey


waking up
earlier than usual
is a pain
and a curse brought to life.

3:00 a.m.
nobody’s awake
the silence is deafening
but my thoughts are everywhere.

i lie awake
to the sound of my breathing
to the sound of my heartbeat
wondering why i exist.

i remember the faults
i have made years ago
and figure out why
i am still alive at this point.

where am i even going?
where am i heading to?
life is so complex
and this is getting tiring.

unsaid thoughts
unfulfilled dreams
haunt me and my sanity
when the world’s still at peace.

let’s give up
this pointless endeavor
because nothing can
even go right anymore.

3:00 a.m.
i am wide awake in bed
staying in this realm of existence
hoping my mind won’t break.
