My Love Life
Depression and Anxiety -
my two faithful suitors.
Taking their turns in courting me,
their melancholic sweet nothings,
are attractive to the old soul in me.
Their promises of companionship,
tempt my sleep deprived flesh,
while arguing quietly in emotion.
Their lackadaisical empathy,
ease the burnout of everyday life,
as my body winds inwardly in defeat.
Their enchanted and kinetic footwork,
with their offer of leading,
woo the exhausted dancer in my heart.
Can I move beyond these rogues,
and follow my unrequited love?
Hope, please wait for me.
