Random Poem:

Blast me pitiful

Sitting here being pitiful
Head down
Face frowns automatically
Sheer disappointment overwhelms
Clothes covered drowning in sorrow
Trying hard to see the sparkling light through the window pane
What seems like endless minutes and hours of sadness are a collection of heartbroken memories since age 5
Sitting in silence reassures the loneliness which resides
It's okay to let appetite fade
There is no nourishment in soul anyways
To feel a hopeful future -
futile attempt
