Sometimes I miss me

And how I used to be

When my schedule wasn’t filled at every hour

With things that don’t benefit me.

I value time alone

My solemn silence at early hours of the morning

The rest of the house still fast asleep

Just me.

I miss having hours to waste

Deciding whether I should to draw or paint

A solemn sense of peace I haven’t felt in a while

Just me.

I miss self care routines and beauty days

Wasting away the minutes relaxing under a freshly washed blanket

Face mask on

Not wasting my thoughts and my energy

There are no deadlines during alone time

Just me.
