Quarter Past Two

The light beside your name is on,

And I’ve been informed,

Without asking,

That you’re awake.

It’s a quarter past two,

And I’m tossing around,

Creating animals without names

In the shadows, in the dark.

The light beside your name is on,

And I brushed it aside,

But now my fingers

Have brought the light to my eyes

And I can’t hear my breaths.

You seldom let the light on

But it’s a quarter past two

And the light beside your name is on

And even though I don’t care to know,

My heart deceives me

As it asks,

“Who?”
