Can I stop pretending?

For I am tired of my own lies

Can I stop asking questions?

For I know most of the answers now.

Can I leave the chores incomplete?

For my hands feel unfamiliar from the ache of doing it all.

Can I take a break?

For I am tired of running on the same tracks.

Can I have a day when tears don’t visit me?

For my eyes burn even when I try to smile.

Can I give up on my old self?

For she won’t survive this one.

Can I have a little ounce of peace?

For I want to hear my daughters grow up.

Can I just give up today?

For I don’t have it in me to start all over again.

But most of all,

Can I have a good night sleep?

For tonight I want to see you in my dreams.
