The Never-sleep Guy

You say Good Night at 10 pm,
And like my posts at 2 am.
You say you’re taking a nap,
Multiple times during the day.
And I think you lie,
You’re a never-sleep guy.

All night long, you stay awake,
Maybe counting the stars,
Or talking to the moon.
About all the things
Life has taken from you,
How totally destroyed are you!

And during the day,
When you say you nap,
It’s just your smooth excuse,
To cut the conversation short.
Faking the ‘oh-so-okay guy’
Is such a horrendous toil.
Is my assumption true?
How broken are you?
Or am I just imagining,
A reflection of me?
Assuming every single person,
To be as dismantled as me.

Inspiration: Bharath Upendra

        I am fine thankyou. But you never really know when they are truly asleep and when they are not asbthey fake it. Often, they claim to be broken but are not really. But they break you with their games. For me, that is what the poem said ❤️

      Haha… We can agree to disagree about what you do all day and all night long. You can keep your mask, I’ll keep the fact. 😝😂😂 And can you send me a hopeless picture of you? I’ll replace this. 😬😂

    A beautiful poem, Shreya! I was intrigued by the perspective of wondering how much we see in another person may simply be a reflection of self as we seek to be seen and understood in the world that surrounds us. A lovely concept and a well written composition! ❤🌹❤😘

    Really like this, but don’t give him too hard a time, you need to be aware that men do like to doze off a lot, I think it dates back to their caveman days….you shouldn’t really stand outside the cave with a stopwatch…..
