a long day

when you forget to wind up your alarm clock

causing you to wake up fifteen minultes later

than usual

when you find yourself


after your morning jog

without knowing why

when you go through your morning routine


like your little wind-up monkey toy

when you show up at work

with your hair beautifully


after having spent twenty minutes

making it look perfect

when the last speaker in your last meeting

is long winded

on the day you wanted to sneak out early

when you drive home

on that long

windy road

just so you can smell

the fresh



when you finally get your

second wind

as you crawl between

your silken sheets

when you find yourself

in the fetal position

beside your favorite chair

with a moderate glass of

red wine

seeping into the carpet

and you

just try to unwind.
