Whispers in the Dark
“But fingers tap into what you were once
And I’m worried that I blew my only chance
Whispers in the dark
Steal a kiss and you’ll break your heart
Pick up your clothes and curl your toes
Learn your lesson, lead me home”
~ Mumford & Sons lyrics to Whispers in the Dark
Tossy – Turny kind of night, sheets all in a swirl. Gripping the pillow, attempting to tether to sleep.
Just ordinary routine, I pull into the driveway and angle to park the car. BOOM! I hit the side of the garage,
I awaken with a jolt. Did we have an earthquake?
More restless thoughts and attempts at sleep… Did my car roll into the ditch? Was I in a fight?
Did I feel anger, resentment or worry about something left un-done or un-said?
Finally, with heavy head – daylight breaks.
My fingers are lightly tap tap tapping on my eyelids. I am sure when I look in the mirror I will have a huge inflamed
black eye…. but I don’t. Not even a spider bite. Just a little puffy from the salty meal the night before.
I blame it on the Gochujang – Korean pepper paste, so delicious on pork, chicken or just about anything!
Drinking lots of water today… water with lemon and ginger…. water with fizzy…. pure spring…. watermelon fresca….. ahhhh
