I become aware of myself before opening my eyes, and there you are, for the six hundred and eighty fifth morning

There is a foreign body in my left eye
In the top right corner

If I keep my eyes closed I can hear you breathing

I feel the grit in my eye move diagonally across my pupil to the bottom left corner

I move to the right
Your presence becomes more tangible with correct body placement

I notice a similar, but less intrusive, foreign body sensation in the top right corner of my right eye.

I turn my head to the left
The pressure on the left side of my head means I now only notice discomfort in my right eye

I scrunch my eyes tight
Trying to  counteract the gritty feeling
