tired

tired

of misery
of anger
of lying
to you
to myself

tired

of walking
on eggshells
of trying
to be something
you perceive

tired

of dreaming
of the real me
my dreams
my love
my sanity

tired

of treading water
reaching out with
soothing caresses dragging
me down
into oblivion sweet
majestic
lovely
haunting

and so I sink
sleep
dream
of escape
