I’m so tired she said

and he agreed

but what he didn’t understand

was the tiredness of which she spoke

was not for want of sleep

  1. How lovely this is… how evocative the words, insightful. How exasperatedly exhausted your figure. One wonders:

    exhausted by the burdens and frailties of a relationship
    exhausted by her partner’s failure to see the nature of her exhaustion

    And I wonder, did the words follow the image, or the image follow the words or, did both respond to the same calling?
