[Poem a Day] “For Waking”

Check out today’s post on Instagram.

There’s a lot of comfort in having conversations in the dark before you fall asleep.

It’s as if you’re in a bit of a daze, but you’re hanging on for as long as you can, carrying a conversation you’ll only start gradually recalling once you’ve shaken the sleep off the next morning.

Something about the sound is immensely peaceful. You want to stay up for it, but it lulls you and pulls you under anyway.

I’m trying to hone in on that feeling a bit here.
