Shattered Slumer


The Daily Prompt: Maze

Her slumber shattered by sunlight pouring in, she shields her sore eyes behind thick, black shades.

Chasing her daily breakfast of aspirin and caffeine she yanks the curtains closer in a desperate attempt to block out the promise of the new day waiting outside her door.

Trapped in the solitary darkness that she has created, she wonders if she’ll ever escape the trappings of the complicated maze that is her mind.

Knowing better yet unable to help herself, she takes another spin on the endless wheel that navigates her days. Ruminating endlessly through the cracks and crevices in her fragile thoughts, she hits another dead-end.

With that she makes her way to the safety of the kitchen and pours the poison she so favors. For a moment, the wheel stops spinning.
