Fatigue Poem by Nosheen Irfan


Rating: 4.5

You get tired
When you do nothing
And sit on aimlessness
Like a lost kitten
When you do more than
Your spirit allows...
The spirit wounded
In an undeclared war
You get tired
When you smile
For no reason
Pretending all is not lost yet
When you have many
Reasons to cry
And not one reason to believe
You get tired
When you love and hate
When you can't understand
Why you love the person
Who has nothing to give
When your words
Have travelled many miles
Only to hear
'Excuse me
I didn't hear.'

You are so right, particularly when you have nothing to do and your mind wanders negatively.

You've got the God gifted talent pf making us feel all you write about and also feel as if it were part of us too. That is the way one feels and knows the greatness of the talent and the comunicative wonder that it is. c

I thought there are only three reasons because 'Or' has appeared two times in your poem but you have given several reasons. Whatever may be the case, I believe in the saying, 'Idle mind is the devil's workshop'
