freefall

my daughter has been bumped up to Tramadol to help manage the pain.

last night, she fell into sleep in a kind of freefall.

when you try to talk specifics, no-one knows. three months? (we’re at that point). six months? nine months? a year?

what is apparent, is the pain is poorly understood; frankly, no-one much wants to understand.

4 a.m. – as she sleeps, i wake from a dream about her.

we’re falling through different parts of the night.
