My exhaustion wears me like a tarnished crown

Wrapping itself around me

Spider web hairs cinching tight

Scurrying about my mind

Then freezing

Like a bug caught in the light

It flickers and weaves

Creating fleeting patterns

A kaleidoscope of fright

Hovering at the corner of sight

Too tired for thought

Too awake to rest

Spinning, dancing, taunting me

Voices creeping, whispering my name

Visions of yesterday haunt my reign

My Queendom shimmers in the haze

As my exhaustion wears me like a tarnished crown
