Misery Feels

written by: devereaux frazier



Misery feels
Like tired muscles
That you keep on moving
Because you don’t know how to stop
There’s an innocence to the madness
Believing you’ll eventually find happiness
Instead of new doorways, lower windows
And every opportunity to undo the good
What little good remains
Misery feels
Like messages sent to friends
That never get replied to
Open, but never responding
Leaves us in a state of despondency
Sickness of hearts is alarming
And the dangling remains show much
I’d love to know and care
But most of all
Misery is like any day
Some are better, some or worse
But at the end of it all
Something, somewhere
Still hurts
