Tired
No sleep, up till the sun rises
Breaking a new day.

Nights with my eyes wide open
And my dreams spinning in circles
Not sure where to go next.

I am tired,
memories dancing
In my head,
Never resting,
Turning to the next song,
Like my own little ballet
Always playing, never stopping.
Not even to take a breath.

I am tired
Thoughts whip through my mind
Like a Current that refuses
To flow in one direction.
Confused and unwilling
To stop and straighten itself out.

A mind that can
Never rest,
Never stop thinking,
Never hear silence.

I am tired
So I try one last time
To sleep.
