Security Blanket.

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 arent 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.
