#0603 Asleep

A loud but distant roar of screams –
waves of silence follow.

Look. It’s 04:30. AM. Why?
Close my eyes and force me
Back to sleep.

Open. This doesn’t work.
The banging of open doors
The gushing of running taps
A constant beating of footsteps.

Who woke me up?
I’m so mad I could punch you.
I am here. Right here. In my bed.
Asleep. (Trying)

Go. Go watch that somewhere else.
Go wash the dishes in the morning
Go straight to your room and
Don’t. Come. Back. Down.

Footsteps down the stairs.

Oh for the love of God.
