Unmoving. You're an inanimate object. The air is your blanket.
Eyelids seem to be weighted down with bricks Dry everything Exhaustion outweighs discomfort.
lying to myself
How long have you remained here. Exhaustion motivates no movement, despite curiosity. Not worth it.
An illusion? Or so you've heard. A mirage, a vague semblance of something the was once there.
Pressing, a sweeping thing, one claims to long for. Your attempts to slumber remain profitless.
no that's a lie
Soft, soft, jarring, stop. Cars outside the window. Stop. The clock, a malevolent snare drum. Stop
Senes sluggish and heightened at the same time. Hypnosis. You feel. You wait.

That's how the saying goes, correct? Like glass. But no. It's just a matter of how hard one is listening.
The air seems to quiver, with anticipation. Waiting. Waiting. Waiting. You shft.

A shiver, a soft surge as your foot touched the cold floor
You give up. Movements still gentle and slow. Moments embedded with exhaustion. You leave.
