Enveloped in Sadness

Enveloped in Sadness

Vacant eyes stare unfocused
The body slouches over
Exhausted from the trials of life
Weary from the constant motion

Inside a heart aches
from the pain of being
Bleeding love that
will never be returned

Sleep comes easily
Whenever and wherever
Grateful to be taken away
to another dimension

My thoughts erratic
scattered like dead leaves
In a barren field
Flying every which way
and confusing

My head spins 
As it tries to remember
Everything that needs to be done 
Not only for you but for me too
and daunting

My identity lost
Drowned in your pool
of needs and wants
Your incapacities
and exhausting

My sanity teeters
On the edge of unreason
Your only responses
indifferent and perfunctory
and disheartening

My energy level low
When did I become invisible?
A means only to your end
Being your caregiver
and demoralizing
