“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
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.
