foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of the mind

I'm so slow

it's like thinking would trouble

me

even the line breaks hurt

and my finger descend onto the keys like stones to the muddy ground,

forcing it down.

I slouch because gravity is unkind to those who find themselves tired

and I ache, because God is unkind to me

My eyes, feel heavy-lidded 

but I can't fall asleep

reading this later, I feel even the poem will appear tired.

I'm a tired poet.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.
