Years Better Erased than Written

I have enough words to tell you I don’t have anything to say,

Not now and not ever again.

 

What’s the point?

What does it matter?

Does anyone actually value being literate,

Or is it merely a convenience?

 

Buried in megapixels,

Whored out for micro SDs,

If only you had a brain.

 

For the fact that change has occurred,

Life remains the same;

Yet because hardly anything is the same,

It’s only then we recognize there has been any change.

Drain Me

You couldn’t pay me to write as of late,

I’ve been blaming a lack of motivation;

A lack of desire,

and at times a lack of much to write.

But it’s honestly at the point,

Where I know it’s not because of lack.

It’s because of the excess,

The surplus in my day to day;

The excess of work,

The excess of isolating and limiting depression,

The overwhelming loose fingered grip I feel upon myself.

 

I keep crashing,

Only to need to wake up moments after;

Or at least that’s how my weary head sees it in this foggy existence.
