I Am Sad

August 14, 2017

This pain
It’s not new to me
It’s long and gray
And deflated
Like an empty house,
Like a watch a minute off from the rest of the world,
Like a ticking bomb
Whose only job
Is to destroy everything it wants to help build.

This pain
It’s not new to me.
Old news
Old newspapers
Misfit toys
Useless things
Just sit in despair
Can’t cry anymore tears
Just sit with a hole in your heart
All alone
And the walls seem to close in on you
And all the world seems so happy and you’re just in pa-

And now you’re choking on your own sadness
Breathing underwater all this time
It’s caught up to you now
And you’re
And you can’t help but wonder
If the rest of your life
You’ll spend sad.
