gloom and doom

Filed under: Random — Tags: — crossedfingers @ 11:48 am

One dusky morning welcomed me as I opened my eyes today, with pillows scattered everywhere; one even pressing against my face. I reached for my phone and looked at the time, and to my surprise, it was just four in the morning. My body clock seemed to be failing me lately, waking me up in the most unlikely times of the day. Just yesterday, I woke up at around one in the afternoon, and then the day before that, I got up around eight in the morning, all without the use of alarms.

In any way, I tried to get back to my sleep by covering my face with a pillow, while thinking of sleepy thoughts. But unfortunately, my system and my body would not cooperate.

I reached for my phone again and noticed an unread message. Upon checking it, I was surprised to see the content of the message. It came from Eyes (not the real name). Eyes’ message contains 3 words with 8 letters. Go figure! And in my mind, I was like “Seriously???” I could not help but be pissed by what Eyes has just sent me. Not that I’m trying to be bitter or whatever, I just don’t get it. I did not reply to Eyes’ message by the way.

All the while, I thought it was already over between the two of us. I thought two weeks of no communication signifies the end of everything. I thought we both have moved on already. In short, I thought it was over. But I guess I was wrong.

For what it’s worth, I tried to not mind the whole morning disaster.

And now that the sun has already set, I could not help but think of the reasons behind the message. I’m pretty sure that it’s not just something random, that it’s not just because Eyes wanted to fool me, and it’s not just because Eyes wanted me to feel bad about everything.

But I should not care.

It’s just sad that all these had to happen today, when I am supposed to rest and unwind from the busy life that I have.

And it was even a gloomy day for me, which is kind of disappointing because I expected to at least have fun today since I have the whole house all to myself.

Too bad for me. I guess I will just try my luck next time. And just hope that I will get the rest that I deserve.
