Days of Future Past (198 words = 251-53)
|Call me Morning Glory. Actually... don't call.|
It's been a rough night, too much dancing and now my neck is stiff.
Ah, the madrugada, that quiet time before the dawn. I usually go to bed early and get up by now. It's the only time I have all to myself.
My boyfriend moved out this past weekend. I was down in the dumps on Saturday. But... Oh, what a Monday! Oh, what a night!
I've never seen so many stars twirling around the dance floor.
I wish the spinning would stop.
I should go to bed but I'm wide awake and now I should hurry to get things done before the dawn, before the city awakes.
I wind my way home and up the steps. I hold on as if I have tendrils.
I pause and turn around. A brief interlude. A quiet solitude.
Ah, that moment before dawn when the nightingale still sings.
Now I see a faint glow below the horizon and I hear a lark. And Monday seems like a dream, bitter-sweet or not. The pinprick holes in the sky seem brighter somehow and the sky is turning pink.
Call me Morning Glory.
