Eyes... please close.

They refuse to close.


Fatigue... take over.

It's not doing its job.


Scenes dance before my tired eyes.

Willing them to stay open.


Let me sleep.



Eyes, just close.

I'm so tired.


Put me to sleep.

Just let me sleep.

Inspired by my countless sleepless nights, where anxiety keeps me up; so much, that "tired" is now a part of my being.
