The all so familiar tune of phone alerts.
In the wee hours of the morning, I woke to the sounds.
I resolved myself to fix my notifications setting.
I can't lose sleep over other's restlessness.
Creatures of the night come prowling.
Longing. Anticipating. Seeking.
Hoping. Hoping for attention.
Finding. Finding affirmation.
The process has begun.
Patterns need to be broken.
For all that's over needs to be over.
The hunt has begun.
The hunter and the hunted.
The prey and the predator.
What are we all in this world -
But creatures awaiting validation.
