2am Flow



It’s that 2am flow

that will keep you up at night.

It’s the one you can never let go.

It’s the verse after verse

that bash through your head,

until lack of sleep doesn’t feel as worst.

It’s the raw emotion

that’s unfiltered by a sunlit mind

and is what keeps you in motion.

It’s that 2am inspiration

that will make you or break you

based on if you give in to it’s temptation.

You can ignore it.

Act like it’s stupid and irrelevant,

but you’ll regret your choice to forgo it.


I prefer to let it take me wherever.

For it’s such an exhilarating journey

that I know I’ll remember it forever.

It’s that 2am flow

that will keep me up at night.

It’s the one I can never let go.
