Sex in the dark, breathing in.

Sleeping at awkward angles.

Cramped up arms and back.

Shallow breathing brings relief.

Alarm rings.

Groundhog Day.

Baggy clothes to hide in.

Tied up hair and shades.

Peeing with the door open, shush-shushing to  wipe.

Nap time and coffee.

Social media blues.

Work trip inadequacies.





So many tears.

Air conditioner sounds.

More tears.

School run.

Repress the emotion, save face.

Save the marriage.

Sleep, try to sleep.

Groundhog Day.
