Truth (Written previously but posted today)

This day has been a long one filled with things that I must do.  I'm exhausted and breaking.  I woke up at 3am and unable to get back to sleep I wiped down the kitchen counters and got ready to go to work.  I could barely keep my eyes open by the afternoon and still I had a meeting after work that I had to attend; it was across town.  I had 3 cups of coffee today. I took a power nap in the car.  I finally get back home and I'm met with that thing that I cannot hold.  Again, sleep eludes me.  It is a curse.

I just need for everyone to be okay.  What do you do when they need so much more than you can give.  I feel my heart closing, protecting itself.  I have no pity.  I just need to be able to get up tomorrow and face my responsibilities.  How can I fight your demons when I'm hardly enough to feed you?  I'm exhausted there is nothing to fill me and you want more... somewhere in the recesses of my mind I understand and wish I could fix it.
