Midnight Hours - Poem by P.W. Safiyah

Twelve o'clock at night *sigh*
And i'm still awake...
It's twelve thirty...
I cant get to sleep...
Cz i'm thinking and wondering...
Why is it that I'm the only one...
Who doesn't have a someone
Behind or beside...
my sister has three...
No wait... make that four...
They just keep coming for her...
Yet for me, I have none...
those someone
Who are behind or beside...
I walk alone, have always done...
It's one o'clock...
And it's still going tick-tock...
And i just can't figure out...
What's wrong
That makes me have none...
Is it because I'm reserved...
While my sister is full of life...
Her eyes shining with happiness...
Are my eyes that dull?
Or is it because i never smile
And i'm so short-tempered...
While my sister is always laughing
so sweet-tempered...
It's one thirty now...
Guess I should go to sleep...
But it keeps pn nagging me...
Why? For what? Where did I go wrong? How did it happen?
Guess I'll never know...
Should sleep, at least till sunup...
Maybe the new day
Will bring a better answer...
Maybe.. may... be...
I jolt awake, the alarm's ringing...
It's seven fifteen, need to get ready...
It's school today...
Will the answer be there?
The whole day passes...
I see many people with their someone...
Others laughing, all full of hope
No answer here...
Will I ever get my answer?
Or am I lost? For eternity?
Or will I find the someone
When I'm fifty?
*sigh* Another sleepless night...
Here I come...
