My first breath of day
lingers with dreams, fresh in my eyes.
My fingers stretch, rudely awakened;
morning has arrived.
Early breezes sweep onto my windows.
A train whistles. Breaking into quiet.
Passengers prepare for the city.
The aroma of coffee steams the air.
My covers. Shields against darkness.
Protectors from dreams stealing me.
The floor. My anchor to pull me back.
A hard boundary separating me from
fiction and reality.
