Everyone is sleeping, but am not..
Room is full with silence, & weather is hot.
I have closed my eyes,as dreaming deep..
But am not lost in thoughts, just trying to sleep.
Its 3 at night, n everythings dark..
But am willing to go outside n walk in a park.
Willing to feel cool air & breathe long..
Looking at the time, I realize, its wrong.
What if I call someone at this time..
No, anyone will think, am not fine.
I should have not sleep in evening like that..
5 hours, I have already slept.. now feeling bad.
I know time is not right..
But attempting a sleep, am texting friends, GOOD NIGHT.
