When you feel so


picking the knots

apart, over and over again

like the scabs you left on my skin




a constellation of self-pity, and regret

I’ve never seen a sadder creature than myself,

if carefree

existed in my dictionary

  1. Beautifully written. I especially like the celestial moment with “constellation of slef pity” reminds me that my own self pity is a tangle of feelings and thoughts….harkening back to your knot needing to be constantly untangled. Such a personal and yet relate-able piece! Thanks for sharing it!
