Poetry (Day 272): Lie

Lie

 

This morning I woke
slowly and blinked
in the soft morning
light until I could read
the green glow
of the time.

Just before 7:00.
A miracle
of biblical proportions.

As the day
seeped into my pores,
I could not help
but smile.

Until I realized
that, 7am or not,
I still needed another
four hours of sleep.
And twenty-five hours
to do the things
I need to do
today.
