Up early

In bed by midnight; up by four AM. The silence of the city soothes if one cares to listen. The voice of a friend echoes from last night: don’t get hurt. I won’t, I say. I almost believe it, for I have friends who take care of me even if someone slam dunks me in front of god and everyone.

You cannot protect yourself at all times if you want something special, she says. She’s correct too. Even a chess game is a gamble if we care to admit it.

I cannot believe my day has started already. I would give a lot for another hour of sleep. Fuck it. I’m playing the black pieces, but I’m Lynn.

  1. See, now my day has started on a depressing note as well. Thank you for that…

  2. Don’t be depressed. I was just meditating out loud.
