For a brief moment

After coffee

Life doesn't seem so bad.

But the moments in between

I feel broken, empty and sad.

I rely on the pills

To help me feel okay,

But they counteract with coffee

And confusion reigns the day.

Not just once but many times

I've wanted it to end,

As there is always something wrong with me

It's a twisted ugly trend.
