you

I’m tired

Exhaustion runs through my bones

My joints are rusted and

I feel like my mother’s bed

When it groans - creaks - underneath

Human contact

 

I’m used up

A river in a drought

Strained and just praying

For some rain

 

There’s a hope I can’t expel

A dream I lived and am

Not prepared to let go of

 

You’re like shakespeare to me

My own version of a

Soliloquy

I remember you singing

Softly in the dark

And we danced to no music

But we had rhythm and

A Song
