I'm tired of periods and
Words that end sentences

I'm tired of waking up to
Days that end in oblivion

I'm tired of writing sentences

Outside the window
I am outside

A purple cloud is behind the mountains
The mountains are behind this poem

This poem is behind time
This poem will never end

It isn't about anything
I'm tired of this poem
