The Whisky Blot
Journal of Literature, Poetry, and Haiku
Drowning in self pity
Drowning in guilt
Drowning in the workload
Unmatched socks, piles of paper and unfinished projects.
Drowning in my own unhealthy body.
Drowning in “what-ifs”
Drowning in listlessness
I think they call it ennui
Drowning in a lack of desire
To do anything
But drown myself
If you maintain this lifestyle you won’t reach 30.
– Marillion, Torch Song
