My head tricks me by saying it’s fine

Yet I can’t even force myself to write a rhyme

This happens from time to time

Feelings surface and I feel the need to confine


I want to sleep all day

Tell myself I don’t have time or energy to play

I end up leaving people I promised I would stay

When I feel out of control there isn’t any other way


I wish I could pick myself back up

Get out of this slump

Dust off the dirt

And put on a new shirt


Not today

Thinking about all the things I didn’t say

About how I pushed you away

Dreaming about a day when I don’t feel grey

-Destiny Fochtman
