Wear Me Out

This morning †  
through the reflection of the mirror † †  
I saw my selfís weary looks † † †
a would-be acute bloodhound † †  
with droopy eyes and floppy ears † †  
† † †
For the past few weeks † †  
I have been staggering † †  
out of my comfort zone † †  
and taking on a new challenge † †  
Trying to pole-vault † †  
hope to jump over the air particles † †  
regardless of the higher heat †  
the friction would dry me out †
† † †  
Soaking In limbo gloom with purge fire † †  
been crashed and burned † †  
Out of the count † †  
my open mouth canít speak † †  
my worn-out body canít give a hug † †  
† † †
I am savoring the feeling of exhaustion † †  
sitting numb and dumb † †  
no way to bear the weight of a pen † †  
Feeling so close † †  
a haggard rose † †  
the saggy petals canít carry dew drops † †  
even the slightest dose † †  
† † †
Iím still breathing † †  
inhaling the spell ray of collapsing † †  
not sure how much I can reach † †  
but I have been moving forward † † †
at least a few more further inches †
