Emotions Raging - Poem by D. M. L. Catseye

It's not his fault anymore.
Now it's all on you.
You brought it unto yourself, all of you.
Why does it happen? You're not allowed to know.

You're insignificant as that speck of dust
and you brought it all on to yourself
good work. You're unhappy.
waiting for a reason to write.

enjoy feeling your heart sink into the
floor, eyes droop into slow, tear-resistant

for many moments I was unaware
of anything but my chin and hair.
the pen and paper, my brain so loud.
[9: 00]
the time flew almost as fast as...
you...
I realize, I thought all wrong.
Said it wrong, made you wrong.
No worries, I was already wrong.
Every day.
Yes. - Depression hurts. NO - Boys don't help.
Maybe I'll dream of beards tonight,
If... I even dream,


Poet's Notes about The Poem

About my dear friend who is slowly coming to an end. From the Pink Journal. He made me rather upset, and he hasn't stopped pulling great works from me.
