Ring! Ring! Ring!

That dreaded alarm, like two symbols crashing together.

Far worse than mom’s nagging

Ring! Ring! Ring! Click.

Warm, tight embrace of the blanket made it feel

as if I was sitting in the sun.

Like a butterfly in a cocoon

So relaxed and warm

Safe, soft, sound.

Alas, giving into the noise

Eyes barely open

As if walking in the dark

My fingers search for the switch

Fumbling, grumbling

I woke and walked out the door.
