awakening

awakening

my eyes opened perky in their sockets. unlike most recent mornings, i could feel them already awake. /my eyes are awake./ it was still dark out.

i flip the covers over. my toes slide out of the just right temperature of bed to the cool smooth floor. my arms and legs move slowly, i'm like a molasses bottle fresh out of the fridge. but my eyes are awake. they are perky in their sockets.
