! Once Again

Rating: 2.6

What is that incessant noise?
Irritatingly interrupting my sleep,
Unravelling the edges of a dream.
Slowly I swim to the surface of reality -
There it is again!
Stabbing like a knife into my foggy brain.
6 a.m. - 6 a.m. - 6 a.m.! !
Lethargically I reach across my pillow
To the source of my irritation
With unsteady deliberation..........
Where is that little button, anyway? ?
Yes! Finally - blessed silence!
It can't be time to get up already -
Where did the night go?
And what about that wonderful dream?
If I try really hard, can I fall back to sleep
And pick up where I left off....hmmm......?
Just get your butt out of bed and get moving!
Is that coffee I smell?
Half awake, I follow the aroma to the kitchen -
Ahhhhh.........that first wake-up sip.........
YOUCH! Burned my tongue -
Geeze! That smarts!
Deep breath........OK... move it, move it, move it!
God, I hate mornings!
Time to do the morning routine................
Once again.
