Masked Faces

A piece to remind you, not every one shows how tired they are, be it from sleep deprivation or mental illness.


Sleep deprived,
A tired soul,
Always speaking of her shadows,
Some how nothing helps release the tension,
Sleep deprived but still alive,
She slips from word to word,
A writer at heart,
Sinking into her mind she lays there,
On hard white paper,
Drowning in the ink as it spreads,
Midnight thoughts flow deeply,
Sinking to the bottom of her coffee cup,
Unlaced shoes sitting ready,
Ready for the run,
Ready for the day,
Masked faces all say,
What a beautiful day,
But none mean what their hallow words say,
Sleep deprived,
But ready and here to stay.
