Chillin’

After a whole year of alarms ringing,

Waking, hustling early every morning,

Breakfast skipping, train rides and teaching,

How good it feels to just lie there and chill.

 

I am stirring quietly, letting my eyes open,

When they will. Basking in delight, and smiling,

I let the softness of the sheets brush against my skin.

How good it feels to just lie there and chill.

 

My blurred thoughts wander in silence.

I take my time to breathe, rise and realize

My time is mine. I can finally be. Free. Tense-less.

How good it is to just rest there and feel.

        1. Your next summer will feel delightful. I am sorry you have to wait that long to fully relax.

          I was so exhausted yesterday. I could not even hold it together. I nodded off, and fell asleep by the lake at the picnic we organized yesterday after work.

  2. Yeah, stillness and rest is something that is almost treated like a sin nowadays, but sometimes essential. You captured the feeling well.

    1. Thank you for reading, Fionn. I agree with you. There needs to be time for both, being active and resting. Resting is no sin, as you said it is much needed, it is essential. Thank you for your compliment 🙂 I love trying to capture feelings with words. I find it quite challenging, and so rewarding when you get it right.
