2am Thoughts

I met you at dusk. We loved till midnight. Then, you left me.

2am found me at my lowest.

When the sun came up, I dried my tears, found my strength, and went on with my day.

The poetry of 2am Thoughts condenses an entire relationship with its untamed emotions and experiences to a single day. As the long hours of the night drag on, so does the love, heartache, and loss. When the dawn breaks, the morning sun brings acceptance, healing, and recovery.  

This was a journey of nostalgia. I was swept up in memories of first love, first heartbreak, and healing, all within the span of one evening.
Courtney Peppernell - Author of Pillow Thoughts

Excerpt

 

It had been forever since I had been in your arms. When you

embraced me, even though a gesture as old friends, I fell right into you…

and fit perfectly.

4:31 pm

 

 It takes hours to get to know someone, really get to know

them, weeks to build a relationship and months to fall truly in love.

But all that could end up being for nothing because in one

second your entire world could fall apart.

One second.

That’s all it took for him to break my heart.

midnight

 

“Do you miss me?”

Every single day. I ache for you to hold me again. I can’t fall

asleep without a thought of you dragging me down. Our

past makes a presence in all of my dreams and I continue to

picture you in my future despite your abandonment.

“No.”
