I'm Falling Again

Updated on March 7, 2018

My head is tilted

My eyes are drooping

I'm drifting to a far off place

I snap back to reality

I yawn and rub my face

I'm just so sleepy

I'm just so tired

To eat is such a strain

It even hurts for me to breathe

I just can't take the pain

My eyes are burning

My eyes are red

I try to keep them open

they flutter and close against my will

I'm falling...falling again

I'm tired of crying

I'm tired of hurting

I'm tired of being strong

There's no way for me to stop it

I'm falling...and my decent is long
