Soul Tired

By DeificLightning

Sleep doesn’t work for the heavy,
Those with heavy hearts and heavy minds. 
When your soul is sucked dry,
And all you ever are is tired. 
A tiredness that never sleeps. 
A sleepiness that never leaves. 
The want to close your eyes forever,
And sink into oblivion. 
Into the inky blackness. 
Into the numbing dark. 
Into the silence.
Into the nothing.
