Despondency Act 8: Panicxiety

 

Agoraphobia
ripped open its fear;
took a peek outside –
displeased,
it crawled back in.

Despondency Act 7: When you invite, No one shows up

 

Many are invited
no one attended;
disappointed in you,
excuse after another –
don’t even bother.

Despondency Act 6: The Best friend who wore a Double Mask

 

A best friend: loyal, honest,
and unconditional –
sooner or later;
their true repugnant form
begins to undress.

Despondency Act 5: Putrid Optimism

 

Optimism vile –
bury our future
in false promises.
Love weary
hanged itself,
alone, no friends.

Outcast, you,
and I, rejected.
Dear society,
may these
two middle fingers
find you well.

Despondency Act 3: Earth Disheveled

 

Earth holding
a candlelight vigil
above its head,
love unwell –
humanity laughed
karma wink tragedy.

Take pictures
of yourself,
full of glee & doubt.
Behind the scenes
we flirt with emptiness.
