Good Night

When it’s 4:23am
Right before the birds wake up
And it’s still dark
This summer night
Calls your face

I shove it away
Thoughts
But I’ve already thought enough today
I’m about to sleep
So you arrive
Mocking my sleeplessness

Your presence cannot be ignored
Your absence cannot be ignored

I like to think
That I could scare you
And tease you
Drive you insane

I was so much like you

So different

I remember our turkish coffee 
Orange evenings
Reading next to each other
In silent admiration

I remember 
You never said you loved me
But once you caught a butterfly
And kept it in a matchbox
For me to set free

Always happy to see you
Now,
Let me sleep
Let me sleep
