Woke up to you again. Holding your sides and shivering, your mouth wide open and screaming so hard your lips shook. Don’t know what to do when you get attacked like that. Don’t know where to put my hands to calm your breathing. But I laid you down in the bathtub and I ran the water up to your ears so that when you screamed you wouldn’t hear it so scarily.
