Sweet Misery - Poem by Kay Conlon

You cannot choose
You do not decide
You have to face up to it
You cannot hide
Sweet Misery.

I’ve had enough
I want to give up
But there is something that stops me
And that something is
Sweet Misery

Walking and falling
At the same time
Unaware ‘till it was too late
When I was consumed by
Sweet Misery.

One day I will remove you
From around my neck
Your purple heart that hangs there
To me is
Sweet Misery.
