Wake me up with buzzing flies
Have me smile until the day dies
I have been numb all these years
And I really, really need to laugh.
I missed you so much
I just could not face you
When I was bitter and sad
When I was broken and bad
When I had no other dreams left.
Rock me to sleep in your arms
To the sound of pesky car alarms
I have been awake all these years
And I really, really need to sleep.
I can tell you so much
And I read of all you never told me
Of when you were dead and gone
When you were lost and on your own
When you died again, again and again.

The usual disclaimer: this is not a poem for a lover, love interest or any "experimental" yearning type of a thing. Got inspired after a late-night conversation with a long-time friend and this happened.
