the knot

I couldn't sleep last night. Everything hurt and no position felt comfortable at all.

I lay there with many thoughts and frustrations. Time passed by like this for a while, until under my closed eyes, I saw a knot. It was low inside my belly, tied tight, and made of thick whitish rope. I imagined my two index fingers prying themselves into whatever space was there and slowly, very slowly, loosening it.

When the knot loosened I felt so much better and finally fell asleep.
