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.
