This cold has a hold of me in such a way that I can't see around it. All I can do is sit and and try to not be suffocated by it. I do not feel the warm yellow sunshine that I should feel when smiling and wishing well of others, there is only gray.
Then, for a moment I can breathe. The coughing and sneezing are gone. The inability to breathe has passed and I feel a tiny sliver of light blue. A hope that the sunshine will return soon. And then as quickly as it came.......it is gone.
Soon enough, this will pass. But for now, there is only gray.
