A little too much

In excess, something's gotta give

A little too much

Too tired

to defend myself.

Too drained

to speak.

Too exhausted to participate

in frivolous conversations.

Too weary to care

about mundane tasks.

Too seasoned to know

that things do not last.

Too fatigued to play

these games.

Too spent to cater

to insecurities.

Too burnt out

to be here -

Inside these walls.

Too much time

slipping away from my dream.

Yet, I notice how strangely -

Everything has slowed down.

A day seems like a week -

Passing time is now

a preoccupation.

Will you daydream

with me?

Escape this reality -

Fly above the world

and just be here

with me?
