As I lay here in bed staring at the world in my hands,
My eyes grow heavy and my thoughts begin to dance.
The bright light of the world lulls me to sleep,
But there’s something outside stuck on repeat.
I let myself drift away, allow my eyes to slip shut,
But just as I relax, something wakes me back up.
There are these incessant chirps just outside my window.
I swear, this damn cricket is going to drive me up a wall.
