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.

The author is just an unfulfilled person using writing as an escape from the harsh reality of life. She thinks she can never be good in poetry but still tries to write on her free time or while waiting for the bus to arrive. She used to write for the high school newspaper but would rather draw comics and editorial cartoons because it's more fun. The author still watches animated movies and shows because it's the only good thing remaining in the world (aside from three-cheese pizza and puppies). The author types in lowercase not because she wants to look "edgy" but because she only uses her phone's Notes app to write. She is usually in the university library or the local pizzeria. When you see her around, don't hesitate to say hi and ask her about her day; she appreciates it a lot.
