Yeah… A new theme project… Some are character-centric. Some Sasusaku, NaruHina, NejiTen, or ShikaTema. :D

This one is Sakura-centric. Don't own!!

2 A.M.

It's that time again.

The time that I wake from these nightmares, suppressing terrified screams that build up to the point that I feel that my chest might explode. If you hadn't left, then maybe I would be ok right now. Fast asleep, possibly even in your arms. But I guess neither of us had that option, did we? You were so torn on revenge, and I was only your shadow, an almost transparent friend, always on your heels.

The alarm clock seems to mock me, the red, block-shaped numbers blinking, and I wonder…Are you as anxious as I am? Do you stare at the time as well, sleep tempting your eyelids to shut, but fear persuading them to stay open? I doubt it. You've never been the one to lose control over something so frivolous as the girl you left behind. I wish you would though. The mere thought of that possibility is the only thing keeping me standing. The only thing that keeps me loving you.

I know I'm not pretty. I'm not that special, either. I guess I've tricked myself into thinking that you're not a man, that maybe you're only looking for someone's devotion. That's impossible, as I've realized. In fact, I've even decided that you probably have a beautiful girlfriend or something… She'd be so lucky to hold what I could never have…

Finally, sleepiness wins the fight over my mind, the nightmares swearing their revenge once my mind becomes vulnerable once more.

And the numbers continue to blink…

Any good? Please review!! Next up, I'm doing Metaphor, which is going to be SasuSaku… *squee!* I'm so excited…!

Please comment before alerting. I want to hear your opinions!!
