So tired. A poem

The time
Keeps ticking ticking
Ticking inside my skull
Like someone drilling
Into my temples
And behind my eyes
1 hour
10 hours
22 hours
I’ve lost track
It doesn’t matter
I know
When enough
Is too much
Eyelids heavy
Drooping
No rest
When the brain
Never gives me rest
And they wonder
Why this dark cloud
Follows me
Clogging up
Thoughts
That make no sense
And my aching eyes
Look up to eye in the sky
But today I just get
The guttural laugh
Mocking my pain
I give in
Hiding inside
The darkness
I’ll just hear the chatter
And block
The rest of the world
Away
