i don't cry
i don't scream
i don't try
to fix a thing
i don't look
i don't blink
i don't cook
i don't think
i don't grin
i don't smile
i don't give in
all the while
because i'm tired
i want you
i want this
i want to do
what i wish
i want them
i want it all
then again
i won't take the fall
i want more
i want less
i want to close the door
and truly confess
because i'm tired
i need to be honest
i need to be true
i need this protest
to end, be through
i need to be careful
i need to used caution
i need not be dull
i need not mention
i need to be
i need to less loose
i need me
i need to choose
but i'm so tired
i can't be you
i can't be this
i can't do what you do
i can't be your wish
i can't continue on
i can't count on much
i can't because i'm gone
i can't expect too much
i can't give in
i can't let go
i can't begin again
but this you know
because i'm tired

Tiredness seeps through this poem and leaves the reader saying, "Yeah, me too." I like the way this is set-up, too.
Reviewed by Felix Perry 4/27/2006
Weariness of the mind and soul can be more tiring then any physical exercise or labour we may take on. It is stress causing and usually tends the person to end up in a hospital with either mental health problems or a heart attack or stroke. You captured will the weariness of the different emotions in this your statement of what you are feeling and need and want.
