Sickness (Day 8 of NaPoWriMo 2015)

Today’s post is quite late and quite shorter than normal, due to a prevalent sickness that has taken a lot out of us. However, we shall continue on! Check out the below:


drained and overflowing like a river after a flood.


Tea energizes me to

keep picking up the pen,

and to stop staring off,

Until I wake up hours later,

unaware of how time is

made to be slow-mo,

and where a day feels like you’ve lived

more hours than 24.

Some days, the sickness wins.

You just have to take up the gauntlet

tomorrow morning,

when the battle begins anew.
