the problem with this girl

there are many problems
with this girl
i've taken the trouble to write a list,
watch- as she slowly unfurls
this girl; she's smacked, whacked
completely wracked,
with uncertainty
she's too sick to function,
yet too thick to say no
too tired to sleep,
too invested to let go
too proud to admit defeat,
too caught in the undertow
too unaffected to weep
too closed-off to say so 
too beaten-down to leap
too stubborn to give into the woe
 too flaky to keep- 
up this empty show...
