Foreword: Written out of pure frustration due to being so continually tired due to no or very little sleep because of ongoing physical discomfort. How the constant cycle of sleep deprivation and poor health affect my perception of myself and my place in the world.
I'm so tired it hurts my brain My mentality's lost in the rain Confused in this mist, my rest has been missed This pattern of pain can't refrain..
Familiar feeling of numb Is my new friend now, I'm over come By familiar waves of patterns undone Feelings to feel discarded like crumbs..
Pulsating waves in my ears never cease Scream at me, their masters to please I thought I knew why, tears no longer to cry Left numb and silent, my soul torn open for keen eyes to pry..
I'm so tired now my mind's playing tricks
On my heart and how I perceive My own belief in this world and the pain I've been hurled Like an autumn tide I want to recede.
