Ambivalent Loneliness

Updated: Jan 9

A mindfield of school

teacher bullets


swallowing used chewing gum grit,


buried pets,


long long ago,

before the rot in this trench

I call home.

The world laughs,

drinks wine,

posing dinners.

Going outdoors

feels criminal.

If I go down the path

I'll look back at a

a confused

dark person

who lives as

a perishing tyre

OK. I'll do it next week

if this gets too much again,

or maybe it won't

next week.


When the pain of staying the same becomes more painful than

the pain o f changing, that is when long-term change can be made.

A big thank you for the picture by Geralt, free on Pixabay.
