Almost comprehensively imperceptible

Just one more unanswered prayer

I stare straight past the wall

My stomach falls, my heart breaks

I close my eyes, but I do not sleep

I do not deserve rest.

It is the moment when you least feel that you deserve rest, that you both most deserve and most need it. I hope you cry and sleep. Best to you, sir.
