Jetlag by Fahd AlSaleh

Jet lag
I feel my body dying slowly
Yet my brain keeps on going
Thought after thought
Passing by in hyper speed
My eyes wide open in the darkness
For I cannot sleep nor rest
Another sleepless night passes
“Why are you so tired?”
I want to say it’s because of you
Because I’m afraid I might lose
those small insignificant memories
Because I’m afraid that I might forget
A small detail of that perfect face
Because I’m afraid that If I sleep
I might never wake up
and lose you forever
But all that I can say
“it’s the jet lag”
