Insomnia and A Cold-A Dramatic Reenactment

(Warning: foul language)

Eyes closed

Almost sleeping-

Then a tickle in my throat.

COUGH!!! HACK!!! HAAACK!!!!!

Jolted from my sleepy state, I gag and cough up the phlegm!

Hours pass-11:45 pm

Back in bed. Almost asleep-

Eyes getting heavy,

Until…

The tickle in my throat returns

HAAACK!! COUGH COUGH!! GAAG!!!!

MOTHER FUCKER it happened again!!!

I go downstairs, nose running, gagging on phlegm.

Time passes-1:30 am.

This time… this time!!

Determined

Not gonna go without sleep.

Feeling fitful,

Body aching from the coughing and hacking…

Hard to sleep now, but eyes still heavy…

Then–that goddamn tickle!!

IT IS MOCKING ME NOW!!!

COUGH! HAAACK!!!!!

You know what?!

Fuck it-I’m staying up tonight!

I hate this damn cold!!

And I wanna rip whatever is causing that tickle out with my bare goddamn hands!!

…As you can guess, this is the roughest night of the week for me. Have had a bad cold since last weekend. Been dealing with the tickle for even longer. I’m not fronting-if I could, I WOULD rip out whatever is causing the tickle. Been dealing with it every night, and now? I feel like it whupped me for good.

Hope you’re having a better night than me, guys n gals. Till Next Time!
