I switch sides
of my bed
every night
so that I'll wake
to a different nobody
every morning

to a different
no body

I like this one

I agree with the "nobody"-"no body" change though, it gives the poem more depth

ouch.  however, i like this sentiment and it is valid for a poem.  sometimes you don't have to say much to make your point.
