I am tired, so very, very tired.
It’s sad, really, because I spend
many hours every day fighting
the tendency toward sleep. Like
my grandparents I lean forward
then pop my head back up. I cannot
control my eyes closing, my body
leaning forward, resting, unwilling
to stay upright. I am so very tired.
Even at this moment when I have slept
all night, my eyes want to close. What
is this all about? Is it my medications? Is
it my tendency to become disengaged?
What is this all about?
I am so very, very tired. This isn’t okay.
It’s distracting. It’s so very crazy. I want
to sleep all the time. I cannot
help it; I am so very tired.
