I can't sleep

I Can't Sleep

I can't sleep
because that girl I used to love
won't leave me alone;
stomping around in my mind,
shaking the pillars in dreamland
overpowering me in my only place of peace,
and that smile she gives off toward me,
shacks my bones,
and tears my heart apart.
She finds her way to my heart,
plays around a little while
and bites a chunk out
and chews slowly,
all I can do is watch her
while her beauty blinds me,
even with my eyes closed.
I can't sleep,
get me some coffee,
this girl won't leave me alone,
she'll have my goodnight sleep,
I'll be a zombie before morning
and that sunrise will wake me up.
I sit at the table
head heavy in my hands,
thinking...thinking of her,
that girl I used to love
and the way she made me feel...
no more thoughts now,
I need some sleep.
