I need to sleep. But I can't because I need to write. I can't write beause I need to sleep. I need to sleep, but so many words are rushing through my head. Too many poems want to write themselves but there isnt enough space on the pages. Not enough time. But I can't sleep. A poem? How can a poem sing? I want to write a poem. But how can I do that if there are too many words wanting to escape at once. I can't sleep. I cant write because my thoughts aren't a straight line. They are like a thousands songs played at the same time. Only a few words make it out. I talk too much. I say the wrong things and can't keep a conversation. Or a friend. People have decided they hate me before they know me. I cant sleep.  I buy things for people thinking thats how I can keep a friend. I'm a fool. A fool who can't sleep. I stay awake at night crying because of those who have left me lonely. One day they just decided to stop talking to me and say it isnt my fault when I have asked why. But I know all too well that it is. I talk too much and dont say the right things. I just want freinds.  I just want to keep a good friend. I repeat myself because people ignore me and I think they don't hear me so I repeat myself. In reality they dont care. Once I start writing its hard to stop. Once I start loving its hard to stop. Once I make a friend I try desperatly to keep them. To the point I scare them away. And its hard to stop caring about them. I just want a friend. I need to sleep. But I can't because I need to write. There's too many emotions I've kept hidden from everyone. From myself. Sometimes I break, but I don't have friends here to help me. I dont have a shoulder to cry on. I fear showing emotions. I don't want to scare people away. I just want friends. I'm too emotional. I talk too much. I feel too much. I hide too much. I cant sleep. I need to write.
