tuesday by katsmp

ever had a memory safely encapsulated in  your hippocampus that you can relive as many times as you want? happens to me every-time i see a bed. i hadn’t been sleeping for some months. & i was frustrated. i did the worst thing you can do when you have insomnia,  fight your way to sleep.  laid on my back,  on my side,  with pillow without a pillow,  & on this particular night my bed was mocking me. so i laid on the carpet & gave up fighting to fall asleep.  that Tuesday i probably fell asleep around 6am i missed an economics final.  & after seeing the closed door of my lecture hall, i walked back and smiled and thought of how great that carpet had felt.
