Delay

Not all hangovers
are physical

some follow
late night
restless night
lamenting
questioning
sobbing sequences
that seep
through the thin veil
of sleeping and waking
into the dreamland
leaving a trail

scattered, shattered sentiment

dozens of distorted discards
dashed dreams

reluctant to rise
combatting confusion
hesitant to hope
but endeavoring to endure
