5 a.m.

This one was after a long time. And a lot had happened in the meanwhile. And it was 5 in the morning and I was dog tired. Sleep was nowhere in sight. And mentally, things were feeling like fun. And sarcasm was dripping all over me. This happened.


The clock is racing and never seems to stop
I have an early morning and just want to flop
On my bed and rest for the day that still lay ahead
Wondering why it should always be like this.

It is 5 am in the morn
Tell me why this life's so forlorn
It is 5 am in the morn
and I don't care for all the worries to be borne.

Here I am again, please let it be not like that again,
Here I am again, wasting hours and days of my own
Lessons learnt the hard way, is this all there is for me,
Here I am again, please let it be not like this again.

Desperate to break free, from my past and these days
Wondering if ever the mirror would not show me that face
Hoping for a new day and a new beginning
Knowing not what lay in store in my future ways.

I yearn again, for what lay now firmly behind me
I cry again, hoping tears will wash it away for me
I hope again, for warm sunshine on my winter daytime
I pray again, coz I know I'm slipping away from me

As the sun breaks, bringing on a false dawn with it
And the chirps warm the heart, where no light dare reach
The day stares me in the eye and I sigh at the my soul
Knowing this is just a break, a respite, a day lit with darkness

Here I am again, please let it be not like that again,
Here I am again, wasting hours and days of my own
Lessons learnt the hard way, is this all there is for me,
Here I am again, please let it be not like this again.
