My cozy little bed
wraps its warm, gray wool covers
Protecting me from the rising sun,
my cozy little bed hides me from the light,
invading the room through the tiny cracks on the blinds.
The alarm urgently rings,
forcing me to stagger out of
my cozy little bed,
and say goodbye
to the most secure place
I have known.
All day, I wonder if
I’ll ever feel that safe again.
Only to come home and find,
my cozy little bed waiting for me.
