Stillness 3

grief on a Friday

Stillness 3

every day is a bad dream, and Fridays are the kind of nightmare you wake up shaking from

▫️

afraid to go back to sleep

▫️

it’s like Fridays are in my muscle memory now

▫️

mornings are worst. trying to ignore the clock but knowing exactly what time it is anyway. reliving that morning is in my blood.

▫️

so I try to surrender to the tide of the day. I know ignoring it won’t work (I’ve tried before.)

taking the blows as they come. knowing tomorrow it’ll be back to just a bad dream again.
