I am falling asleep as I write this.

Tired

by davorite

I am falling asleep.

But I am awake.

Though I'd very much rather I be asleep...

Because at this point, I think I can sleep for a hundred years. Maybe more.

I have a lot of life to live,

but I'd take more sleep any day.

The exhaustion is crushing me...

Like a deadweight.

My eyes strain to see

and my body is weak.

I am very, very tired.

I think I need a nap.

The world is an oyster

and I am falling asleep.

I'm not a big sleeper. One older classmate told me in my freshman year of college if I sleep 8 hrs. a day, by the time I am 60 yrs old I will have been sleeping for 20 yrs. of my life. All that aside, you hooked me with this piece. I was completely charmed and smiling through the whole thing;. Great poem.
