Today, Again

Same day – Every day:

My sleep is riddled with nightmares

I wake at 4:00am because my head pounds 

Two Excedrin Migraine 

Out of bed five hours before him isn’t enough time 

To myself

By myself 

Pills get me prepared for his eventual arrival

Do I dare waste this special time on sleep

Do I dare stay awake during this special time

Today he will expect me to fill his hours 

Today he will insist on seeing his parents – together 

Today, again
