Weather’s warm, the sky is blue,
Perfect chance to finally unwind.
Alas, I cannot taste the kiss of peace,
For the storm that rages in my mind.
Been through lots of awful stuff,
Everyone has, in their own way.
But now that I have burned quite out,
May I please just fade away?
Mind screaming in painful denial,
Fueled by my adrenal cortex.
The Diet Dr Pepper is completely frozen,
Damn you, polar vortex!
Writing is not always an easy task,
Sometimes it leaves me feeling malaise.
So I will simply end this poem,
By using the word mayonnaise.
Watching the snow fall down from above,
While Sammy and I are lying in bed.
Silence is pierced by screaming winds,
And all of the voices inside my head.
