what do you whisper to self?

when you go to bed
but sleep can’t find you
what do you whisper to self?

when the world seems to wrap you
in harsh realities.
and love tastes bittersweet
what words come to the head?

when dreams can’t find you,
only nightmares.
how do you calm down
before going back to bed.

when your lover caresses the hair
and whispers sweet nothings in your ear.
looking in their eyes,
what do you gasp, in your mind?

when you find the silence deafening
and comfort in background noises
what fills your head?

when you hurt and love
and lose and find
what do you say to yourself?

for the murmurs of the world can fade,
be forgiven or forgotten
but what you whisper to self, stays.
