Exhaustion

The affairs of life
As of late
Have taken their toll
And
Last night
The nervousness
From layoffs of the downturn
The push
to keep a positive attitude
and the demands
of daily life
Left me feeling
Emotionally and physically
Exhausted.

I gave in
to the emotional overload
I ordered
an easy dinner
I let the babe
watch movies in bed
while I indulged my mind
In the fantasy
of fictional characters
I let the dishes sit
where the lay
and we all retired early
to the peace of a bit extra
Sleep.
