balancing being awake
like plates on rods
covered in cuts from
falling over and over

they tell me it’s
seasonal depression
I think it’s
a permanent state

my sense of cognizance
fades alongside my
ability to function
and attend functions

never been
so tired.
never felt like
such a failure.

maybe if I
take this pill
drink this tea
cry these tears

maybe if I
just rest for
one moment
longer than now

I’ll wake up and
function like
the normal I
never knew.
