NaPoWriMo 2015, Day 12: What happens when I try to get up earlier (a poem)

I did not follow any specific prompts for Day 12. Still, this poem feels somewhat like the damage poem suggested in today’s Writer’s Digest April PAD Challenge prompt

The Sunday morning coffee
is slightly bitter
but I’m sleepy

The only problem
is that I can still remember
the sleepiness is not enough
to overcome the power of memory

On the other hand
I am awake now…
