i can tell you are tired

i keep hoping
will say

i keep hoping
someone will notice
what i gave away

and the future presses
against my heart
as i grow wise
in the face of so much pain
a reality
we can simply not come
to terms with

never will…

i suppose
we imagine
it would steal
our humanity

a die-hard hope peddler
almost died this year
because the truth
was simply
not what
she was wanting

so yes
i am tired
frankly wiped out

but happier
and okay
just deliriously
exhausted now

ya know,
i guess
it’s not so surprising
the lights
did go out

look, look what
we (i) gave
