Exhausted by Sidney Gaudet
Exhausted is like the color gray.
Like a hungry wolf that spend the whole night looking for food,
Or the soot you cleaned out of the fireplace.
It is like the clouds on a rainy day that woke me from my slumber,
Like the huge rock I tried to bring home.
Exhausted is like a heavy fish on the end of your fishing rod,
Like the smoke that comes from the chimney that you tried to clear all day.
Exhausted is like the cement you got stuck in before it dried and you have been using all your might to get out of,
Like grey eyed people’s eyes after a long day.
