I slept with you
No matter how mature I thought I was
I couldn’t resist the comfort of you
Praying one day that you would notice my loyalty but fortunately, I grew
My toes started to be exposed, rolling over for you only to cover me partially
Still, I reached for you
Maybe I’ll fluff my pillows or could it be these sheets? What’s wrong with my routine? Why Am I not getting any sleep?
Lavender linen spray, detox baths, and chamomile tea before bedtime
No T.V., nightly meditations and even stretching, oh my
I’m doing what I’m told, why aren’t the remedies helping?
No matter what I incorporated, the fetal position was the only way I was supported
So I tossed & I turned, kicked you off only to learn
We’ve outgrown each other
Me? Get rid of my favorite blanket? Lol yeah right!?
But ever since I’ve let you go, my sleep is peaceful at night.
