Over time my flaws and faults seemed to overpower any and all ofmy strengths and successes... And I began to feel hopelessly outnumbered by myself.
I fell asleep. I felt safe. I was drinking. Fell asleep. On my couch. In my home. My husband went to bed. You were there. My husband's coworker. Fucking watching. Fucking waiting. I woke up.
