can i?

i am tired.

can i go home?

which one?

whichever that feels like it.

how could you know

when you’re dead inside already

not being able

to feel anything at all?

i am not dead inside.

i can feel something.

i just do not know what it is.

what’s the point of feeling

if you don’t even know

what it is?

if you can’t even pour it down

into words?

i am tired.

can i go home?
