too weak to even speak

energy is seeping
slipping
rapidly awaytired

i didn’t get
much sleep today
and not last night
and not all week

and i’m too weak
to even speak
say what?
an hour or so to nap
would be
all right and maybe
good for me
and energize me
to go on
tonight to play the Sims til dawn.
