Out Of Control ~ A Poem

Out Of Control

Lethargy invades
the space
of my physical being
and ebbing
waves of wasted energy
escape along the surface of my skin

Tiredness controls my thoughts
which hold me prisoner
no motivation
to erase
the memories
no wish to love
no strength to hate

cannot exist
in the cesspool
of indifference

Sleep will come
when invited

and then
the picture
will change . . .
