In the Middle of the Night

Wide awake in the middle of the night,

Can’t sleep, can’t get you off my mind.

No saying how this story will go,

No saying when these thoughts quiet down.

I’ve tossed and turned and tried to think

Of a way to make wrongs become right.

But the more I try the harder it seems,

To rewrite a story without any flaws.

It’s not easy to confront the storm inside.

It’s not so easy but I stay this fight

For otherwise I find myself dead awake

Consumed with you in the middle of the night.
