Half asleep I reach out, stumbling for my phone
3:45 in the morning, it’s a text message from you ,
Your message read “R U awake? I can’t sleep
Ring me if U R! “
I ring you back
You answer Hi your awake! I can’t sleep,
Yes I abruptly replied” I gathered” (well it is 3:45 in the morning!)
You go onto tell me you liked my poem
You agree we really do need to talk .
We arrange a date for this Sunday, time yet unsure
Then we continue to chat a little more
You tell me how you’ve not been sleeping and how your mind wanders
You then enlighten me that’s it’s 1 month, 2 weeks, 6 days since we last had sex
It’s right about then that I’m feeling a bit vexed
and I’m struggling to find a reason why I adore you , but I do! (well it is 3:45 in the morning!)
