    this is a poem that kinda has to be read aloud at a fast pace with alot of emotion...anyway i wrote this when i was extremely sick...and just to let ya'll know i've doing much better now! haven't been to the hospital in a while:)
    enjoy!


    its 2 a.m...
    i'm sittin' in the den
    i feel so thin
    inside within
    my man is sleep
    i need to eat
    but i can't see
    i have no energy
    i feel so lost
    like my life costs
    my breath lost
    i feel so alone
    and feel so gone
    i'm so drawn
    its 2 a.m...
    i should be sleep
    i need to eat
    my minds not eased
    i need to call
    the people who all
    sent things and called
    i need to rest
    i need to take tests
    i need to breathe
    oxygen seems to freeze
    i want to go
    so far and go
    i need to go
    i NEED to go
    i don't care
    it don't matter where
    i need some care
    although he cares
    i love my man so
    and he helps oh
    and i need him so
    he don't understand, no
    oh no, no, no
    its 2 a.m....
    i need a friend
    i have friends
    but not like Him
    He's my best friend
    through thick and thin
    i adore Him
    my heavenly Father
    my great provider
    my abundant healer
    i need a healer
    He's my constant healer
    well..........
    its 3 a.m....
    i need a friend
    i need him
    and i need Him
    i need to rest
    tomorrow's a test
    i think i'll go rest...
    yeah...i'll rest...

    girl you have this uncanny ability to pull a reader
    into your mind...into your experiences...
    this was so vivid...wow, for just a moment
    your thoughts became my thoughts...
    now that's writing...
