OVERHEATING AGAIN

Written by Millie Jenny C.

All of a sudden. . .
WHAM. . .
A BOILING THAT SEEMS TO RISE AND RISE.
OK . . .
HERE I GO OVERHEATING AGAIN. . .
Waking in the middle of the night. . .
Throwing off the covers.
Starting to cool off again.
Slip serenely off to sleep.
Then Im startled awake
Try to find the discarded covers
Without totally waking myself up again.
Now Im Cold. . .
Alright. . .ALRIGHT.
Enough of this.
I was with a friend over the weekend,
All of a sudden, I saw her picking up a menu to fan herself.
You too, huh?
Her tale was of night sweats
That soaked her bed. . . .
And I noticed beads of sweat the next time
The makeshift fan came out.
Maybe its not so bad with me.
I feel flushed, but the sweat doesnt pour off me.
I guess I should be glad. . .
But then again at 3 AM. . .
Im not quite as patient. . .
Time to STOP!
Hot flashes!
