Theme: Melancholy

Down in the Dumps

Fog everywhere, I’m walking on a mass of corpses
sludge of soft rotting soil. Sinking deeper, arms
and legs embracing me as I should be one of them.

In a lake of loss, I swam ashore, a soup of death,
banks of bones, a woman in white helped me up...
she too was the haze and disappeared. I totter in
a desert of nothingness. I heard footsteps behind
me, death wanted me to return to the lagoon of
reconstructed dreams. Heart pounding, but there,
by a horizon, dawn and sun of life warmed my face,
but only briefly. The sky rained blood of the evicted.

Drops were rubies and in each one, the nucleolus of
my lies and delusions engraved. Inundated, I stopped
could not go on, how do I get free of barbed wire of
melancholy? Whispering voices: “You fu*king loser.”
