Another Sleepless Night

by Ren   Nov 28, 2017


Not because my heart
feels like an imposing
anchor inside my
already heavy
chest

Or because of the
fearful thoughts that
poke and prod until
tears fall and the
anchor sinks so
deeply I forget

how

to

…breathe…

No.

My bloodshot eyes
stare at the blank ceiling above-
and I feel…

Nothing.

Because I am absolutely
…exhausted…
from pretending to be
stronger than
I actually
feel

    We all fall at some point in life. Endurance suffers in silence. Glory awaits the enduring.
