2 PM Thoughts

It’s not always during the witching hour.
It slowddly creeps up on you
during the middle of the day.

Suddenly you’re thinking of
a pet you buried two summers ago.

It’s not a blanket that
suffocates you with its emotions.
It’s not an icy feeling that
diffuses throughout the body.

Sometimes it looks like an egg;
a broken egg in a nest.

Slowly the events chip at you,
A piece here, another disappointment there.
Perhaps it’s the subject you fail miserably
No matter how hard you try.

It’s being a part of the group
And everyone is a part of
the conversation but you.

It’s thinking that
You’re never going to be enough.
It’s believing that
You deserve to feel this way.

It’s all the dismal emotions you face.
It’s all the wretched weeks you spent,
denying its existence.

It’s the despair you think of at 2 PM.
It’s the sorrow you refuse to acknowledge.
