Someone wrote me a poem…

by Violet

sometimes, late at night, i think of you when i really should be sleeping
i rarely sleep, mostly due to insomnia,
but sometimes i’m not sure if it’s that or the fact that i am breathlessly waiting for a chance to talk to you
and talking to you is painful
terrifying
and exciting
the discomfort is totally worth it when i get a laugh or a smile or, my god, a “you’re adorable!”
it’s worth even when there’s no response and i panic and assume i’ve said something too awkward to overlook

sometimes, late at night, i think about kissing you,
when i really should be sleeping,
and wonder how your lips would feel against mine
(and abruptly remember that i lost my chapstick ages ago and never bothered to replace it)
if you would taste like cigarattes
if i would like it

sometimes, late at night, i think of you
in the most innocuous fashion
and just want to know how your day has been
when i have absolutely no business being awake
