Snooze

Sleepily, I look at the time
6:45 in the morning
I had been asleep for thirty minutes straight
Before the alarm went off
It was the longest nap
I had taken in the past week,
The calmest sleep I’d been in.

There are so many things
I need to accomplish today
But all I want to do is hit the snooze button
And erase it all with sleep.
I wish I could erase it all with sleep.

Instead, I get up and look at the white dress
Hanging by my closet door
I try to wipe the look of grief
Off my face
But I know I couldn’t anymore

In two hours, my life would be over
I guess I’d been delaying this
But no one can really prepare
A burial two weeks
after a wedding
