5am.
Awake.
It’s dark.
Eyes focus on something familiar in the room.
Stare at it for hours.
Lost in it’s shape.
What is it?
Ten minutes pass.
Thoughts race.
Spin and tumble.
Over and under.
The day is too raw to start.
Roll over.
Are my eyes adjusting to the light or is the room getting brighter?
Sigh.
Chances of falling asleep again fall through my fingers.
Roll over.
Grime.
More moments flitter away.
Cold.
Clinks, murmurs of the day outside awakening.
The house starts to wake itself.
Creaks, groans, whirls.
Padded feet patter.
I hear cars and people.
The sky is pink.
Is today the day?
No, the sun is too warm.
