awake

i roll over to check
the time on my phone
4:30 AM
once again
i’m lying here
eyes open
mind racing
wondering if you’re
dreaming
or even awake and
thinking of me
my brain invaded
by thoughts of you
i’ve already met you
a half dozen times tonight
in my dreams
each one
paling in comparison
to the real you
the you that has
disrupted my sleep
and turned my world
upside down
