Drained

Drained.  Empty.  A shell.  Hollow

Bleary teary eyes a soul in fallow

Restrained.  Immobile.  A jail.  A gallows

Weary leery eyes, a soul in fallow

After sleeping there’s more exhaustion

More exhaustion, more exhaustion draining life away

After sleeping there’s no refreshing

Sense of energy, sense of energy

What’s draining it all away?

After sleeping facing the day ahead

Dreading and fretting the hours that lie in wait

After sleeping there’s only day dreams

And schemes to return quickly, quickly back to bed

What’s draining it all away?

Drained. Empty. A shell. No more lines…
