4 a.m. is the witching hour:
Everything feels so much more intense at 4 a.m. If you lay your head on your pillow at night and are feeling lonely, sad, excited, angry, worried, or ??? - and you happen to wake at 4 a.m. - whatever you were feeling when you first lay your head down will feel utterly unmanageable at 4:00 a.m.
The kind of unmanageable that drives you to stand outside in the snow or pouring rain with a cigarette in hand…
the one fun exception:
4 a.m. and your libido.
You never want the person beside you more than when you wake up at 4 a.m.
You could have fallen asleep perfectly content to have your hand on your paramour’s stomach – but when you wake at 4 a.m. the skin on one’s stomach just does not cut it.
But maybe that’s just me? =)
