Falling

Night falls --

As should I,

but don't.

I want to sleep,

but my heart dominates me.

It knows --

That if it falls asleep

it will have to awake

another day.

My eyes --

Heavy,

scream for relief.

My mind and body --

Exhausted,

Plead for mercy.

My heart knows no mercy.

My heart knows not of relief.

My heart only knows --

Pain.

Each pump

more excruciating

than the next.
