Turn Up Tuesdays w/Stassi: Sleepless poetry

I know Thursday is usually #ThrowbackThursday but on this Tuesday I decided to pull out this poem from my archives. I wrote this one a few years ago with inspiration from my experiences, my friends’ experiences, and random movies that I happened to find myself watching.

I lie awake at night,
sleepless,
because so many thoughts run through my head.
I am empty inside,
heartbroken,

because you let me run away from you.

My mind is stuck on repeat.
My mind is stuck on repeat.
My mind is stuck on repeat.

Why did you have to do it?
Why did you have to say it?

Why did you have to mean so much to me?

Why?

I didn’t need your hello.
I didn’t won’t your goodbye.
I couldn’t stand your….look into my eyes,

“I’m going to miss you.”

Why?

Why did you have to mean so much to me?
Why did you have to say it?

Why did you have to do it?

My mind is stuck on repeat.
My mind is stuck on repeat.
My mind is stuck on repeat.

Because you pushed me away from you,
heartbroken,
I am empty inside.
Because the thoughts won’t turn off in my head,
sleepless,
I lie awake at night.
Stassi
