2:03 am, middle of the night and I wake up lonely!?

I’ve tried to reenter my dream where everyone knows me

But my mind said, “No, there’s no escape. This is what’s real.”

The rest of me said,”Loneliness is not reality, it’s just how I feel.”

When I last closed my eyes I was in no way feeling isolated

But now it’s pitch black and I’m lonesome and irritated

It is an odd feeling: I don’t crave an embrace or a kiss

Just a companion; someone I know I’d miss

Maybe this emotion is a secret my subconscious has been trying to keep

Or maybe I’m just irrational and I need to go back to sleep
