Nails on a chalkboard. Awake, I scanned my cold, empty room. Green alarm clock lights displayed 3:03. Experience said there was no chance of falling into a restless sleep. A noise from the street below echoed scars from my dream and shook the night’s unusual stillness.  Beyond my window, streetlights illuminated snowflakes performing detached dances.

Snowplow, my mind decoded.

I considered my options and opted for the least obvious. It didn’t take long to dress and descend into ankle deep oblivion. Buffered silence swaddled my anguish as I walked deserted streets to reluctantly face the reality of being alone again.


Keep on writing.

  1. I especially enjoy, even though it’s grim, the scene you’ve created. Dark room, lack of sleep, green lights, snow outside “detached.” I can imagine waking in this way, too. To say the least, evocative work.–Christopher
