the cry of the miserable filth

“I have learned now that while those who speak about one’s miseries usually hurt, those who keep silence hurt more.” – C.S. Lewis

“Part of every misery is, so to speak, the misery’s shadow or reflection: the fact that you don’t merely suffer but have to keep on thinking about the fact that you suffer. I not only live each endless day in grief, but live each day thinking about living each day in grief.” – C.S. Lewis

cry for me oh, hopeless ones,
let your tears be shed in rivers,
dismiss thoughts of rejuvenation,
make life heavy and lonely for me.

i don’t want to be tied down
to something i am not sure myself.

leave me in my own sanity,
let me not be drowned and forget
that living fully is being denied,
being void of the happiness…

make me the misery that loves
sorrow and depression.
antagonize my instincts,
let me worry about living,
