Becoming Distraught


Today is a tough day

So much sadness in the way

At work, I'm, mostly okay

I’m pretty good at faking through the day!

My life is going so slow

there’s no place for me to go.

I’m stuck here with you

Living in misery, I wonder if you feel it too?

My mind is numb, I think my body is too.

We hardly talk anymore at all

It’s quiet and lonely, so all I do is sit and scrawl

Except for the dogs bark

Out of my head, she must be blocked!

She pierces right through me, and I

lose my train to thought

It makes me  wonder how long, before I’m totally distraught!
