Old Habits

I’m willing to admit

I did this to myself.

Mostly.

I succumbed to temptation

and let my interest

take me for a ride.

Until,

late last night

I realized what time it was

and sent myself to bed.

Except

I forgot about the child

and nightmares

and how they caused me lack of sleep.

So now

bleary eyed

and bushwhacked

I sit down

with a coffee mug in hand

and wish I could pull this off once more.

Like I used to in my earlier days

of University.
