This is my reality

Your three things today are:


I sit staring
Mug in hand
Staring unseeing
My brain on overload
My mind whizzing
90 miles an hour
Thoughts racing
I try to calm myself
I grip the mug tightly
The heat penetrates my skin
I am alone
Alone and afraid
In the middle of the night
I grab a blanket
And wrap up tight in it
My dog at my feet
And mug of tea in hand
I slowly sip it
Feel my arms, rub my feet on my dogs soft fur
Slowly I come back to the present
Back to reality
When my tea is all gone
I snuggle down
Under my fleece blanket
And hope against hope
That sleep will come soon.
