Stifling a yawn (Collab)

Collabs / Poetry
By Secret Thoughts Within and Vintage Black 

I am so tired
so very, very tired
of not feeling comfortable within myself 
I am so weary
so very, very weary
of putting my heart back on the shelf
 
Tired 
        tired tired
Weary 
        weary weary
 
Comfortable with nothing
and weary with so little
my shelf life (patience) expired
and my honest thoughts
are cracked and 
b    r    i    t    t    l     e
 
Feelings in disguise,
yet naked to my eyes
tired of dried tears
words stumbling 
in my mouth
 
I’m comfortable 
with nothing
I keep wearing
this sad face,
walking through my life 
feeling barely 
awake
 
I am so tired
so very, very tired
of not feeling comfortable within myself 
I am so weary
so very, very weary
of putting my heart back on the shelf
 
Tired 
        tired tired
Weary 
        weary weary
 
I open my eyes 
stifle a yawn
allow my heart to take some chances
Some friendly hugs
Some cheeky words
Some flirty engaging glances
 
Still 
      so tired,
and so weary 
               I am
 
Yet I know, 
with a smile
a verse
a stream of thought,
a nice coffee
under the sun

I’ll awaken from dreams
and all I have lost
and slowly 
but surely discover 
my heart's still beating—
