Working today from the 30/30 prompt “cold sweat.” I frequently have nightmares, including last night! Even so, I love reading about the origins of the word and artistic depictions throughout history.
If it’s just a bad dream then why is it that the worst ones don’t leave the chest even after you’re awake? You might breathe fine throughout the day, cold sweat dried, racing heart slowed, but still it presses, a burrowing worry that drinks air and reason through its blackened roots.
One thought on “PAD 2021 – Day 3”
I can relate to this 😦
