Pretending to be sleeping,
hearing your roommate talk about the most pointless things,
and pretending to be asleep.
Nothing bothers you,
you're under warm covers,
and nothing bothers you.
But then the sunlight seeps through
the cracks in the shades and into your sleepy eyes
and the sunlight seeps through.
Pretending becomes harder,
as your mind wakes up and remembers everything terrible and good,
and pretending becomes harder.
You sit up and push back the covers,
a wave of cold hits your body,
and you wake up.
The hardest part of the day is over.
