Morose

I haven’t been feeling myself lately, & for that I am truly sorry! I haven’t been writing at all lately, not for quite some time. I decided to do something about that tonight. This poem just goes to show that no one is happy & positive all the time. No matter how hard we may try, we all get down. We all have bad days. We all go through slumps. Sometimes what we need is solidarity. To know that we are not alone. I am hoping that maybe someone can relate to what I wrote tonight. No matter what you may be feeling, I promise you there is someone out there who feels the same way! So today I decided to write. I knew what came out of my fingertips wouldn’t be joyful. But, writing has always been my escape. It is what makes me, me. I knew that the longer I put off writing the longer I’d feel dead inside. So I did the only thing I knew to do & let me mind escape from my head onto the page. ❤ This was the result:

Once a girl full of wonder

Now mobile, breathing corpse

Go to work, then come home

Nothing happens but remorse

 

Holidays are nonexistent

Feelings just the same

Eating to postpone the grave

In this body devoid of flame

 

Her life perceived as over

No writing & no thoughts

Ceasing to create her own

How can this cycle be stopped?

 

Swept into imaginary worlds

Through books & in her dreams

Scrolling through her phone

Wasting time staring at memes

 

What happened to the soul

That sparkled like a diamond 

In the society, which is rough?

 

Her light diminished

Her world now dark

When will it be enough?

 

They say the spirit is eternal

That it goes beyond the grave

But, what happens when the spirit

Becomes the body’s slave?
