I’m Five Years Old and I Can’t Sleep written by junior Nina Goldshmid

I used to not be able to fall asleep

Without holding your hand,

Afraid that I would fall into the deep.

Last night you told me

you would check up on me in fifteen minutes.

I counted every second of every minute

And you did not come.

The haunting image

Left from the space documentary I watched last night

Of a black hole turning everything I love

Into noodles.

Would it make sense to cry?

If it will bring me back to the now.

I will cry because I can’t close my eyes

Because when I see nothing

I am nothing

And you’re gone

Along with my reality
