Malaise

I have been infected

a general malaise has overtaken…..

my mind

my soul

my body.

As I sit upon the pier

gazing at starlit waters

I cannot help but feel…..

uncertain

unwanted

unloved.

I strove for perfection

for dedication

only to find nothing

but heartbreak

confusion

disillusion.

Uncertain as to what will come

I sit here

no longer expecting much

for malaise has infected

everyone.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
