Saturday Centus Wk 148 Perhaps

Saturday Centus Week 148  – The prompt this week is:   “Without you around, I sleep like a baby” 108 words including the 5 in the Title.

Perhaps because there is no snoring
no sniffling, moaning, grumbling
perhaps there is no waking me as you
get up for the loo
perhaps I am not woken from sheets
or doona being dragged off me
or talking in your sleep as you
sometimes do
yes
without you around I sleep like a baby
I wake in the morning quite refreshed
but I would miss the noises that you
make the little disturbances throughout
the night
for I know that this way you
are next to me
your body next to mine and
I’d rather have that and a restless
sleep
than be sleeping all alone

  1. Wow.

    You captured my emotions so perfectly here.

    I keep thinking I’d like to have a silent room at night…no snoring, no hum from my husbands c-pap machine!

    But, my…it would be such a big and empty bed without him.

    Wonderful word crafting.
