Hello Old Friend



There you are again old friend

Creeping out of my dark

Dusty cobwebbed corners


Just like the many times

I foolishly thought

“I’ve finally escaped your clutches”


Your tendrils grasp  

At every happy moment

Choking the life out of me


You make everything...

Longer. Harder.

More quick to quit.


How do you explain:

Sadness for no reason?

Tears with no cause?


How can nothing be wrong?

But my chest is heavy

My heart hurting


I guess I’ll just sleep

Toss and turn

Together but somehow alone


I guess i’ll shrug you on

Like an old sweater

Sadness is my security blanket
