Lagging

Lagging

Tiredness came swiftly
Smothering
Laying heavy on my eyes
and limbs
Suppressing efforts of revival
A deep state
Encompassing

Feeling grubby and unclean
Exhausting
Succumbing to sleep
Dramatic and deep
Eccentric Dreams
Teasing

Body failing to adjust
Confusing
Brightness of mind
Wins over darkness of night
Fully awake
Rejuvenating

Mind now alert
Conflicting
Energy is lowered
Limbs cannot move
Mind is willing but flesh is weak
Frustrating
