This post is for Day 13 of the 2019 Slice of Life Challenge. Thanks to the Two Writing Teachers for bringing this community of writers together to share our writing in the month of March.
The flu crud has reached our house. I was the last to take it on. I know I will feel better soon but I just want to sleep through the day and night.
Heavy weight sitting on my chest
Headache that pounds
A voice that is rough and low and scratchy
Coughing that keeps me from sleep
Life on hold
Until meds kick in
And restful sleep comes.
