wpid-20140621_010014.jpgDream shattered by the buzzing phone, she drifts between sleep and consciousness.

One eye opens, and then another as her mind struggles to get a grip on the present.

The next few minutes was an internal battle between her mind and her flesh. One wants to stay in bed, feed her depressed soul with even more loneliness to dwell on the “what ifs” and “what could’ve beens”; the other wants to get going and live the day.

The need for nourishment and bodily functions won that day, with extra effort not to go back to bed.
