I figured out

today

that what

drives me also

divides me.

When I wake up

from a nap

I am two people.

I am the person

I was before

that nap

and the person

after.

I have decisions

to make now,

I have a place

to disconnect

from.

I have to get

back to work

and I have to

somehow

convince myself

that going back

to sleep

will not solve

anything

because if it could

then it

would have already

happened.

I think that a nap

could push me,

it could be

the one thing

that makes me

finish that essay

or that reading

response

from Hell.

So I take that

nap and indulge

in giving in.

Because sometimes

giving in

is the only way

I feel like

time isn’t getting

past me.

I feel like something

will happen

after I do this

for myself.

After I finally

let my body

fold into

itself,

curl into

my mind,

And then I can

wake up

to something

different,

Something

that has always

been there,

But something

within it

that I have

never seen

before.
