Do you want to sleep tonight? ~Adewumi Godwin
It’s lonely here.
There’s unfamiliar shadows.
And unknown voices.
I don’t want to sleep.
You can’t protect me from there.
Will you read to me?
Sing me a sweet melody?
Calm me from this anxiety?
Of course I will.
Stay up with you.
I’ll sing your strange shadows to dance.
I’ll read to you,
stories of past loves
before you found me.
You don’t have to sleep and even if you do
It’s time for us as a people to start making some changes. The time is now!!
Do you believe in spirits?
I’m missing your touch
Still feeling your presence
The smell of your scent is in the air
I just want to look into your eyes one more time
That’s a lie
I want to look into your eyes forever in a day
Walk by your side
Laugh and smile
Sit and Do nothing
I just want you
I just want to hear
The sound of your voice
Every breath you take while you lay sleeping
Sleeping the afternoon away
I just want you here
Not there or wherever you are
I want you here
Right here next to me
Chills take over my body
Let’s me know that you never left
It’s Friday. What you doing? Shhhh….chilling. You?
They said it’s fall time. But I can’t tell. Enjoying my afternoons doing what I love.
You know the funny thing is that I’ve probably seen you and didn’t even know and you’ve probably seen me and didn’t even know.
I ain’t from the city but I plan on leaving a piece of me in the city.
