Wake up.
Usually from a dream that ended too soon
or a harshly realistic nightmare.
How unlucky.
About an hour is spend lazing in bed,
stuck in a state between the dream world
and contentiousness because the second
my eyes register daylight, I realize that
time is running out. Time before anyone
realizes I’m awake, time before reality
hits me like a brick wall, time I can spend
free floating in a world of my own that
only exists in my own mind…
So I day dream with my eyes closed
and if I’m lucky I can slip back into
sleep seamlessly and get a redo of
that nightmare or fantasy that previously
made me stir. But today sickness forces
me to skip pleasantries. I hurt myself
in my sleep. Throat swollen, barely
breathing. Inner cheek bleeding,
bones aching. Eyes irritated and
heart dismayed. Inspiration fading…
There’s something poetic to be said
here, I just don’t know what.
