Awake You - Poem by Charles Lara

Awake awake you
you’re not awake
in the early morning
shitting out a new day
while the rest of them sleep
and I stand wide awake
and waiting waiting waiting
for you to wake
and you sleep
and never wake
just like last night
and the night before that
so my flower dies a little more
