When You've Slept Enough

By Gia, age 17, Florida

I've written you letter after letter,
Only for them to pile up in a folder on my computer.
I've waited up every night,
Only for me to know that you aren't coming.

So I've made some mistakes,
But I have a promising future,
A future you were supposed to be a part of.

I've become a person you would love to meet,
Full of inspiration and dreams coming true.
When I started writing all of the time,
I wanted to tell you so badly.

When you've slept enough,
Maybe you'll wake up and realize how much I need you,
Or how when I call you crying,
The sound of your voice is the only thing that will calm me down.

For months and months you're the only thing I can write about.
When I pressed my lips against another's, I wished they were yours.
It makes me crazy that you aren't sleeping next to me.

I've had this disorder,
Something that won't let up.
I can't stand the thought that you are only a few short miles away,
But so far away.
I can't stop thinking that I'm on your mind, but you would rather stay away,
Because I can't stop missing you no matter how much I try.

When you've slept enough,
You'll realize that you weren't a regret but the biggest mistake,
Because I let you go.

When you've slept enough,
Maybe you'll realize that you should come home now,
Because the candle in my room is almost burnt.
