2:36 am



2 am is for the poets who can’t sleep,
Because their minds are alive with words…
For people who are not there.

For the alcoholics, drinking themselves
Into amnesia to forget…
Someone who left.

2 am is not for the lovers,
Asleep in each other’s arms.

It’s for the lonely,
The ones who are in love with the loved…
But are not loved in return.

About this poem

There are many people in the world, who lie in bed and dream about the person they love but don't love them back.
