One Winter

A normal winter day- The chilly breeze fills the empty air. I can feel the lack of sleep run through my veins as I stumble into school like a drunk after a night out- part of the daily routine. A normal winter day- I drag myself into dunkin donuts. The favorite part of the day. I am a baby getting tickled, belly laughing at the jokes made by my team. That same iced caramel coffee, fueling me for my endeavors. I hold it close, for it powers me. A normal winter day- The north gym. A place where sweat and tears are churned. The squeak of my sneakers, the skip of a jump rope- two hours of hell at the time. Home for the night, repeat tomorrow. I sit today- a mask grabbing my face like a small child to their mother’s hand. Coming home to stare at blank walls. I long for it- Iced caramel coffee and the north gym. I long for it- A normal winter day.
