Sorry for the 2 depressing posts in a row, guys! I was being a sad sack. Health issues yada yada yada. got me feeling a LITTLE BLUE. however, I am on the up and up, i promise. I just get a wee bit dramatic at times. emphasis on dramatic.

seasonal depression.

I want to exorcise something that isn't there.

that big, empty, hole...

How can something barren be SO heavy?

Half baked and vacuous attempts at lightening the load

with ink. or paint. or a faceless stranger.

are becoming nightmarish.

I am a careless bull in a china shop.

Screaming my insecurities into the void

waiting for an echo.

(note: this has been a particularly hard winter for me. I have many things to celebrate. I choose to celebrate my melancholy today)

We’re not dead yet

Winter’s grip around my neck
Is starting to melt…
And I can feel those herniated discs

Slowly retreating.

November, December
You did nothing to comfort me.
And you can fuck yourself.

your ice paralyzed me.

January, February
Determined and with muscle
Was the only way to escape you.

Now March into April with me.

What was once soft
Like a porcupine’s belly
Is akin to a turtle tummy.

And I don’t care.

Spring flowers will soon bloom.
Robins will eat worms.
and I’ll cycle again.
