Pretentious

I sleep in seconds,
Unable to sustain this pretentiousness.

My youthful stamina is dwindling.
A weakness I work to keep hidden.
There are times I want to surrender; giving in to my burdens.

The darkness no longer
Bargains with the light.

One day,
I will set my eyes
On a beautiful sunset.
Returning the favor
With a smile.
