Shut Down

Shut Down

A Poem by Sharon Kim
"

Feeling sleepy

"

Shut Down

The door to my brain starts to slide shut

The battery has run down and sleep mode is imminent

I try to bypass the circuit by introducing a dark liquid substance

Unfortunately, the substance is at half power and is failing to be effective.

It seems I am left with little choice.

I reach over and hit the power switch.

System recharging.  Full charge in 6 hours.

This is cute and something that everyone can relate to. I find myself writing or reading and feel myself fading out of reality. I try to fight it but shut down usually wins! Thank you for sharing.

I like that you said "dark liquid substance". My mind went somewhere else entirely. Probably because I'm weird.
