So Tired

I’m so tired

of spitting up  pinkish chuckles

and periwinkle grins

for the sake of polite

conversation and

I am so tired of

those blunted, whispering pains

just above my belly button-

where acid has swallowed my

parties

and my

friends

and my

life -as it was-

And I’m so tired

of leaving this room and walking out

into a world where there is too much sunlight

because Iamsotired and

I  just want

to

rest.
