Can’t you see?

The fire in my eyes

Struggling

To stay lit?

Can’t you see?

The words bubbling up inside me

Fighting

To make sense?

You see my withering body.

Can’t you see my battered soul?

I’m tired.

I want to rest.

Lay myself down in bed and for once

Sleep.

Can’t you see?

I’m tired.
