A poem for today

I feel blank and empty, like my brain is malfunctioning software.
There is a bug, a glitch in me, and I am frozen on the same page, unable to reload or restart.
Just stuck.
I feel these dark, sickening forces swirling thick, grey and purple, in my stomach.
It’s a poison I can’t cough up.

My heart beats like machinery in overdrive. My body can’t contain this black anger any more.
But everything in me forces me to shove it back down into the simmering pit of my feelings.
Eruption imminent.
No hope.
No cure.
This is hell on earth.

I tried to find an image that would sum up how I feel, to go along with this poem. Thankyou to the artist who created this 🙂 Can be found here.
