Drabble #80


Prompt: Author's Choice
Inspiration: A Softer World

I can make a list of all the ways in which things are easier, create diagrams and spreadsheets that prove you right, but I never had the stomach for office work, logic, or proof. All I know is that I don’t sleep better after all, I’m am insomniac with or without you. I need to fill those too-dark too-early too-late hours with something to shake the side effects of permanent wakefulness. I set out in search of adventures, make intentional mistakes because there’s nothing wrong with learning a lesson twice, but I would rather be awake all night with you.
