    I am sleepy, not because my body is weak.

    I am sleepy, not because my mind can't think.

    I am sleepy because my soul has become weak.

    I am sleepy because my heart has grown tierd.

    I am sleepy because I have given myself to those
    I thought had a mind to listen, a soul to lead while
    their heart is the engine.

    I am sleepy because im tierd of trying to  make peace.

    I am sleepy, because I've tried with all my will for those to listen
    and to no avail they have failed.

    I am sleepy, because I have given them all of me and there is
    no more.

    I am sleepy, because there is no more for me.

    So with these thoughts I tilt the neck and try for just one more sec.

    Enough to write what I know, enough that maybe you might close the hole in your gapping soul.

    And with these words I am left with the night alone and I am cold.

    I wait with eyes closed, thoughts open.

    I wait and I wait for eyes to open.

    For mind to obsorb, for a heart to listen.

    For I am close to setting my soul free, my mind silent, my heart still, my eyes shut.

    So I can sleep.

    Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.
