Did you ever wake up and realize that somehow, over night, everything stopped making sense? All of a sudden, your bed feels foreign to you. Your pillow is cold against your cheek and your blankets aren’t as comforting as they used to be. You drag yourself out from beneath the covers and the walk to the bathroom Feels longer than you remember. The tile on the floor is more solid and the little rug in front of the sink no longer caresses your toes. When you look up, when you make eye contact with yourself, you notice that your eyes are no longer the same shade of blue. Your hair is longer and lighter, your shoulders sag lower, and the wrinkles at the corners of your eyes are more defined. You turn the **** on the sink but the water takes longer to warm than it did the night before. Washing your face, you hope that it’s all just an illusion. You look up again and nothing’s changed. Your heart starts to race, you hope that it’s just an off morning but your mind tells you that you know better. Slowly, you take the few steps back to your room and look at the person lying in the space beside yours. You close your eyes and open them once more. Nothing, you feel nothing. The person lying in your bed is suddenly a stranger, and then you realize, so is the person inside of you.
