Most nights I sit on my bed with my dog.
Most nights I think about why I’m such a screw-up.
Most nights I think about the changes I want to make.
Most nights I wiggle my toes till they are warm.
Most nights I notice the spots where paint peels off the wall.
Most nights I toss the question of “why?” around.
Most nights I uncomfortably twist and turn under the blankets.
Most nights I am too hot.
Most nights I am too cold.
Most nights I listen to slow music.
Most nights I think about art.
Most nights I don’t fall asleep till morning.
Most nights I have terrible anxiety.
Most nights I think about all the cute things I have been told.
Most nights I twirl my hair.
Most nights I sit on my bed with my dog.
