Just Another Entry

Stephanie Fletcher

The day breaks and I feel alive.

The sunlight touches my nose and waking up at 4:45 am is suddenly worth it.

But the darkness is creeping in.

I take out my pen and my sketchbook and set to work.

I breathe and let the darkness in.

Black words scratch the fresh canvas, my hands tremble.

I can't breathe anymore.

I slam the pen down, and I close the sketchbook.

Just another entry.
