gurgling tar

i didn’t wake up
this morning
as sleep
never managed
to quite work
its way around
to my quiet hell

lost in thoughts
that spun
on and on
until the alarm
blared a sound
of sullen defeat
into the room

i feel exhausted
but it doesn’t quite
overtake the sorrow
that has bubbled
to the surface
gurgling tar
in quicksand sleepy
