I walked past my shadow twice today.
It was dragging its feet,
faint on the sidewalk from the weak winter sun.
So tired from late nights, unsatisfying jobs,
pretending to be a grown up, pretending not to care;
my entire being is begging
for a deep, dreamless slumber to rest my weary
head, heart, body.
“Please, please, please,”
“give me what I want.”
Discontent and disconnect
wear me out.
"Please, please, please,"
"give me what I want."
