Wake Up Call

by Vashti 0 reviews

"My alarm pushes me into /the briar patch of consciousness..." I think this poem as a whole is kind of... bleh, but I like some of the imagery. Warning: Two swear word at the end.

My alarm pushes me into
the briar patch of consciousness as
the warmth of both sleep and blankets
deserts me. I kill the noise

with my brain tucked snugly in bed
the husk goes on auto-pilot
sleep calls out continuously
temptation is an empty bed

incoherence crashes against
my skull, sensations are filtered
through heavy glass, distorting life
Damning early morning to hell
