tired again

my eyes are sinking in my head
I feel them shrivel dry
to keep them open is a chore
to focus is too tiresome
eyelids crying out for sleep
and every limb, so heavy
dreams of soft sheets
deep pillowed hills
warm duvet’s chaste embrace
yet onwards I must move
as mother, partner, worker bee
and stay above the surface
else the darkness drag me down
