    Why is it that
    In spite of all the emptiness
    My heart feels so heavy?

    A cold

    Microscopic life
    Insignificant we think
    Giants we are
    What can they do?
    Unperceivable war
    Incessant and bloody
    Immune front
    Microbe infantries advance
    Battles in fluid
    Bodies devoured
    Just a cold.

    Ringing

    You think wrong,
    "there's no correct way to think"
    You act wrong,
    "cop yourself on"
    Smash your fist in your head,
    it hurts, it hurts, it hurts.
    All your ringing made my heart go numb.

    The Process of Realizing

    Weighed down.
    The process of making any kind of effort
    Is short lived in the morning hours
    After I realized none of it matters.
    So now I feel heavier.
    At first I decided just to take a short break
    And find some comfort in glazing over
    With my less than satisfactory coffee
    And the familiarity of my loud kids.
    But exhaustion sets in.
    The overwhelming desire to close my eyes
    Lay on the floor and cuddle with the carpet
    Is more appealing than dealing
    With this life of responsibility.
    I'm giving up.
    My eyes beg to be closed
    And the cinder block in my chest
    Drops me where I lay now.
    Just let me sleep.

    Most of us

    Torrid choking desperation lines his throat and licks his lips.
    A dismal stale bowl hiding under the ashes of a long dead cherry, taunting him, teasing shameful satisfaction.
    There is no great adventure ahead.
    There is no great adventure behind.
    There will be no reward for his endless toil.
    He is too tired to fight for any cause.
    He is too tired to take control of his life.
    He is too tired. He is too tired. He is too tired of it all.
    Still they blame him. Still they say he should have done more. He is too tired to repeat himself. He is too tired to care. He is too tired. He is too tired. He is too tired. He is-

    Train slumber

    Gentle rocking
    Quiet carriage
    On the way home
    Work day exhausting
    Fight the sleep
    Inevitable outcome
    Fall into unconscious comfort
    Dreamless oblivion
    Foreign alarm
    Wake up alert
    Miss my stop.

    The hypocrisy of it all

    If you wait till 9/11, saying "remember where you were?"
    I'll just look at you confused, cause I was just a little girl.
    But these days I watch the news and get exhausted by onslaught of gun violence, racist riots, feel good stories 'bout the desperate.
    You can't stand that I can't stand your pointless prayers while I am mourning.
    All you really care to do is keep repeating old ass stories that don't matter enough anymore to give you any queries.
    Bitch, if I wanted a sermon I'd go high up on the mountain and pretend to speak to god like Moses. Like his brother Aaron Id come down to free my people from the hate which you bestow.
    I'd throw my staff down at your feet, then I would watch the poison flow.
    I guess my tongue is like a serpents cause I trained to be a preacher. And I've always loved to teach. How 'bout we dig a little deeper?
    Cause I've got a lot to say, while you lay spinning in that grave, which you keep diggin' daily,
    but the old selfs never slain.
    Maybe we ain't read the same book, don't you know that prides a sin?
    And so are anger, spite, and hatred. That's just murder kept within. And that's exactly where it lives, you know, my love of suckin' dick.
    So what's the difference? Your existence makes you guilty. Makes me sick.
    It's hard to try to teach without learning some kind of lesson.
    Don't act like every Sunday you don't give one more last confession.
    Forgiveness must come within, it's just not something you can purchase.
    Tell your God he can eat my ass, now it's His turn to worship.

    Exhaustion of the East and West
    Exhaustion of the North and South
    And again Exhaustion of the centre for sure
    Exhaustion of the travel
    Like the cat entering the Home's mistakenly kept opened window
    Exhaustion enters in our body
    One after another morning's exhaustion
    Evening followed by all afternoon's exhaustion
    Setting sun's evening and then the Exhaustion of the night
    Exhaustion of the unwillingly waking half opened eyes in the early mornings
    Feed the poor, or do all medical ailments,
    Or do some mysticism
    This exhaustion will never never decamp your body!!!
    Exhaustion of brushing teeth everyday and each day
    Applying soap on you body
    Wearing and removing clothes each day..
    Exhaustion of not only staying awake but of sleeping too
    Exhaustion of writing as well as speaking
    Exhaustion of quietness too
    Exhaustion of being a child and now exhaustion of being the old one too...!!!!

    In my adolescent age, I drew a scenery,
    Sun rising from the between of two mountains
    Open fields below with a small golden hut made of hay.. A river flowing from beside the house and a boat floating over it..
    Not to forget the tiny few birds flying over the shaped clouded skies..all des are captured in my archaic book with no mobility left..

    Now I can see in that scenic picture,
    The picture has become motionless and dormant due to Exhaustion..
    I can see the cat entering the same small golden hut ...
    The Exhaustion entering the body of motionless me!!!!!

    Many times you have a exhaustion,
    the way you handle is what matters,
    if you let it overpower you and stop you from going ahead,
    or you just let it go and don't worry about it anymore,
    the focus should be on what benefits you, rather than on what drains your energy.

    The Quiet Crime

    Has he lifted the curse
    The peril that lived in his stomach
    Through many rising storms?

    There is no urgency in him
    As panic encircles the seething earth
    Filling strangers with venom

    He is stalled on a cliff
    Too stunned by the embers
    Too far in exhaustion to speak
    To fall apart
    To heed the call to arms

    Don't grip thy crown
    And fling it too far,
    It'll leave your cheek
    A nasty scar,
    For like a boomerang
    It will zip back
    In a swift and speedy
    Resounding smack!

    In my tongue, there's tucked
    The sweet and supple
    Taste of sleep
    Laced in tangy
    Rude awakening.
    From the vacant, dull
    Promise of respite.
    Some days my resolve
    Is of scrubby iron wool
    And other days, I come to find
    Are velvetine or porcelain.
    The ache of inability
    Still sneaks beneath
    These blanket edges
    Like a creeping chilled
    Eastern wind.
    And I know then how age
    Becomes more than a number
    When the floor becomes
    The easiest to sleep on.
    With my spine of steel
    And stiff upper lip
    I'll face tomorrow
    Once again,
    I hope that taking
    Time for rest
    Isn't just going
    Through the motions.

    There's an incomparable talent
    For their hidden agenda
    Behind all the smokescreens
    And quiet tacenda.
    A mystifying darkness
    That flirts with the danger
    Have you gall enough
    To dance with this stranger?
    Hush, little demons
    Don't you scream
    I'll lay us all down
    Right to sleep
    Together forever
    In peaceful unrest
    Till dawn do you
    The ultimate test.

    My bed is an ocean
    And waves of rejection
    Toss about my lifeboat.
    A captain shouldn't sleep
    No matter his exhaustion.
    He must remain vigilant
    And watch where the lightning strikes
    Count the seconds in between
    Steady his hands to the helm
    And steer for his life.
    In storms like these
    You can't afford to lose focus
    Lest your boat be capsized
    And sink beneath the water
    Never to be found.

    I need a drink
    that can take away this exhaustion
    I need something that can
    serve as a distraction
    Huh
    Poor souls
    All these worldly things
    Cannot soothe your suffocation

    Sleep

    Each morning it calls
    Ignored with stimulants
    Responsibilities take precedence
    Day wears on
    The lullaby louder
    Arrive home
    Bed whispers
    Go to sleep
    Forget troubles
    Stranded stress and worries
    Fall into temporary oblivion.

    Trying make sense of a long forgotten draft. I need to clear some drafts in order to reserve some room for more useful drafts to be made, especially with the draft limit nowadays �� ��

    The older we get, the more we become cynical and radiate less positive, bright and happy energy.

    Sometimes we just drift by to go along the way in life.
    And when that does happen, often times we give up a part of ourselves that makes us excited and stare in awe at what the world has to offer before us.

    We just live to get by, but not truly living as we once were. Some things had to give in life, but if given the chance, would you take the risk to find what your true passions are once again? Or do you already know what's the likely outcome so you don't even bother to dream it anymore?

    It's kinda funny what children sees
    The first ride on a bus may seem adventuresome
    But an adult will see it as another daily hassle

    Children eh?
    How interesting and exciting things they see
    But as the years go by and we grow older
    So do the dullness that takes hold in our eyes
