   My eyes open, I sit up.

The view becomes obscured, like the aftermath

of an overly brilliant light bulb.

I wait until all is clear, all is shadowed.

In the bathroom, my hands find a cup,

and water finds its way into the cup.

Suddenly I forget my thoughts.

Slowly the darkness clouds my mind, then

my eyes - until all is murky and muted.

I slip down, and sit in the corner, as

a frightening tiredness takes over me.

I slumber, perhaps too deeply,

then I climb back in bed, and my eyes close.
