NaPoWriMo 2012 Day 20

today i woke with my mouth dry from grimacing
stretched overlong, winced at spasm
despite expecting it
sleep liberally lining eyelids
gummed shut, still, wishing to be back under
but the day pokes bright its insistence
that i rejoin the living
though it offers nothing of interest
to entice me out of bed
and i decide it will have to do  without me
manipulate lips into something more closely resembling...closed
and allow eyes to resume the position
the day can go on without my contribution
for now, my dreams need tending
