Three days and forty nights
I lie awake in my bed
2 hours and 355 seconds
Your name slipped on my lips
And your ring stays on my fingertips
355 thousand times in my head
I asked the same questions for
Almost 3 months and 2 weeks
Since the day you said it’s not in the cards
I multiply the many times my heart ached
And throbbed for that single touch
Nothing can equate to the range
Of my echoes as I cried for you
Every broken nights, this me is broken
Every hungry thought of silly blues
The nation protested on my silence
They’re on my side counting sheep
As I try to slipped out of coma
From this delirious stupidity
Three days and forty nights
Since I’ve lain awake in my bed
The whole system crashed
While I stubbornly decoded your site
3 times since the monitor said
“Stupid” on its big bold fonts
100 times I robbed my eyes and said
I am imagining things…
Three days and forty nights
That’s too much for a girl to lie awake
In her tattered bed
Now, three days and forty nights
After I’ve lain awake in my bed
You’ll be counting sheep till
You fall asleep wondering
The many times I’ve told you
That everything’s over…
After trillion times I bumped my head
…Three days and forty nights
I’ve been sleeping beautifully on my bed!


The folly of being insanely inlove.
