Half of me is wide awake at midnight

Senselessly scrolling through social media

With an insatiable urge to refresh the page

Over and over again

Until I see you do something

Anything

And half of me isn't hungry anymore

Just really thirsty

I mean, my stomach hurts sometimes

But nothing tastes quite as good

As the food from a spontaneous dance party

In the kitchen when everyone's sleeping

Forgetting the water is boiling and setting off the fire alarm

It was always spaghetti

Half of me is really tired of music

Which is crazy, right?

Who could be tired of raw emotional expression?

The only person to tear up while listening to "Despacito"

Yeah that's right, the Bieber song

You can laugh all you want, it reminded me of the good ol' days

I do still listen to the Cranberries though

Half of me doesn't want to leave the house anymore

Not that there's anything here for me really

Just a laptop and a bed

And the constant sound of reality tv

In a room that gets way too cold

But this is the only place where i feel like everything is under control

Half of me…

Hold up, had the check facebook really quick

Nothing new, sorry about that

Half of me wants it all to just end already

Relax this isn't a cry for help

Well it is actually

But it's to a specific person

Who Ironically enough is the only person that I hope doesn't read this

Half of me doesn't want to finish this poem
