Some Nights

Some nights my dreams evaporate into waves of self-recrimination with little transition from sleep to wakefulness. A weight settles onto my chest, my heart races, and my thoughts chase one another in an endless loop.

Other nights I fall into peaceful slumber, amusing vignettes keeping me company through the long night. I stretch luxuriously upon waking, and a smile remains on my lips.

I wish there were a vending machine into which I could insert coins for either choice A or choice B. I really need a B night.

Peace, people.

  1. I’ve had two B nights in a row, so I’m bracing myself for the former. A doctor friend of ours says about sleepless nights, “Change the conversation in your head.” I laughed when he said because it sounded flippant. But lately I’ve done just that when I’m obsessing about something at 2:00am. Damn if it doesn’t help. Good luck! – Marty
