Do you ever get tired?

I see you yawning,
I feel my mouth stretching in unison,
Maybe, out of boredom
Of this self-imposed inadequacy.

Will you ever wake up?

(Probably not.)

Restless leg syndrome
And the numbness of insomnia
Are the only sensations
That remind me I’m alive.


Hmm, if you could call what you do living,
I suppose,
You are alive.
