Right now ~
Right now, the clock ticks. My body houses flaming aches that stretch and pummel when I cough. Sometimes my breath grates my chest. Right now, friends are meeting for a bridge game without me. And tomorrow, my ukulele class, my yoga class, another friend will carry on without me, because I am sick. THAT voice already needles me – so people get sick, get over yourself. But I don’t want to. I want to feel sorry for myself because I am alone, because I can’t ask for someone to come and take care of me, because maybe there is no one.
