Weltschmerz



My inside pulled out heart
Is a 300 gram autobiography
A tattered and bleeding diary
Of systolic wars and valved peace
Fluttering jay sung arrhythmia
Beating in sentences of lost hope
Like the cadence of a rainstorm

It’s a fang bared ouroboros
Swallowing its perpetual end
While shitting every beginning
I wish I was jaunty and unladen
Like a random drifting feather
Gambolling across Atlas’s cheek
As he shudders under the weight
