In the end it will be okay, if it's not okay it's not the end


The alarm screams
a new number one hit
as my eyes tear
wishing I had let them rest more
just another hour
maybe even two
my arms feel numb
as I try to pry them
from their set in place
tucked safely in the mattress
which could be my twin
I long to lay there
to not get up
to not check my email
and to turn off my cell phone
I long to lay there
listening to the number one hit
until it is over played
and another takes its place

This piece was inspired by my mother and how she must feel getting up in the morning to do all the things she does.
