#185 of 365 – “insensate”



my feet drag heavy

the air feels soiled and thick


my mind crawls beneath

an envy I would rather not admit


I am sickened by feelings of worthlessness

I try to swallow and hide


poisoned by faithless resentments

that flood and won’t subside


but I keep praying for different thinking

that will bring some relief


and lift me from this hollow

of insensate disbelief

    Oh dear, this is a hard place to be, I know. Your writing is so authentic; wonderful, even when it describes what none of us would choose to feel, experience.
