in the moments of melancholy


i lie
as if dead
spread
on my bed
dead on
my bed,
dead spread on my bed.

and this
death
on my
blue bedspread.
looks cold.

a cold
blue death
on a blue bedspread
startles
my orange room.

and i open my eyes.

death is not an enemy it once was...a quote that makes a lot more sense to me now than it did before.

don't get so worked up please. think about that girl who use to feel so excited that her room got re painted and try finding happiness in smaller details of life compared to the huge problems in life.

i am just going back(or forth)in my psyche. i probably am not melancholic really. or perhaps i always am.

uglygirl ~ if there weren't so many names vying to be mine middle one, melancholy would be it too.
