Ever present in the shadows of your mind, quietly waiting
Never quite knowing when it will take hold again
Learning the 'triggers' of such a chain of events, is crucial
The tormented individual believes it's just a case of 'the blues'
Days turn into weeks and you know something isn't right
The disorder is typically seen as laughable, ignored by many
Viewed as 'low grade', it gets little attention from the forum
The tears and the agony tell us a different story
The loss of interest and lethargy linger daily, grinding onward
Dragging yourself from one day to the next, is a feeling of condemnation
The anguish is as physical as it is a mental state
It hurts to laugh and smile, it hurts to cry out or sing
five hour energyi suppose
last week was only an aftershock
of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,
emitting coffee-scented moods
and the burn of it too.
i had memorized the
sounds of silence,
i couldn't help but relish it.
no longer had i known
the sounds of folk
and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter
i so desperately needed to hear again.
then the echoes got louder,
bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest
i walked into your room
expecting exactly what i found-
an unmade bed,
and an empty beer
(the one that you insisted you needed
just days ago).
i pressed my nose
into the pillow
for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
