I didn’t think I had the brain space to do any extra writing because I have been attempting the NANOWRIMO challenge but struggling with it so I am taking a break.
But here I go giving it a try.
It’s 10:00 o’clock sleep burns my eyes
I should be asleep yet still I sit, no make that lounge
most lights are off
save for one.
Left on to keep the thieves, the spirits and boogie monsters at bay.
the only song to be heard comes from the television
which entices me with entertainment and a chance for a giggle
All else around me is still and at rest.
Sitting here on the couch by myself
I am free to unwind, and declutter my head of all that the day brought.
Free of children and husbands with demands.
Right here on the couch with the remote in my hand
There is quiet and at last I allowed to just be.
