Tired


I desire to express myself
And know that it is alright to feel

Would you let me be tired?
Exhausted
With loving
Doing the right thing
Falling short

It drains me
And I go to sleep
Alone

I still feel like that girl

The easy catch
Cheap date

It gets hard to fight her
When everything in my life
Tells me that she's so near to me

And when I try to require that people do the right thing
In regards to me

They leave

Sometimes
It's exhausting
Being me

i love how we are too busy being on blogger to fiddle around with the reality of school. =)

but anyway, i really like this, especially the last part "sometimes/it's exhausting/being me". it's almost something i would read comically, but you've transformed it into something deeper. beautifully written.
