Weary

Upon her face, weariness so deep
Deprived of rest and deprived of sleep
Eyes are sunken and face so pale
Those around pondering her tale
But the reasons elude even her
As the days and nights pass in a blur
And blissful sleep just out of reach
Though to the night she does beseech
“For just this once do not pass so quick
Let the clock slow down its endless tick
Let time stand still within this night
So I may have the strength to fight
All of the battles waiting for me
That have kept me down on bended knee”
But by the night, her pleas unheard
And the daylight comes, undeterred


No Rest

Darkness sets in but sleep evades me
Into my dreams I wish to be set free
The sweet escape is all that I seek
Yet my prospects are seeming so bleak
Though the hour wanes my eyes stay wide
Seeking rest that continues to hide
“No rest for the wicked” the saying does go
What my misdeed could have been I do not know
Refuge from this weary world I implore
But my pleas fall unanswered to the floor
