Supremely Irritated (With Good Reason)

Note: please excuse the spacing. Our internet is down and I’m typing this on my phone, which adores double spacing and can’t be persuaded otherwise.

I’m tired

I’m always tired

I’m weary

I’m often weary

I’m exhausted

I’m so tired of feeling exhausted

Is it age?

Is it health?

Is it ennui?

Is it me?

No, I know the culprit

I know what bears the guilt

That’s why

I wanna slap ya

Sleep apnoea


Another poem from Gill Lambert’s Summer Retreat workshop. I also managed a serious poem about domestic violence, not suitable for this blog.



  1. hopefully the domestic violence poem isn’t from personal experience, Linda… And sorry you’re feeling exhausted!

      Thank you, David. I’m happy to say that it isn’t from personal experience, for which I am very grateful; I just have an interest in writing about women’s issues.
