everything sideways on the bed

everything sideways on the bed.

the lamp still on, there’s a bug on the wall.

a note above my pillow reads:

“love (naturally) hurts.”

what is the opposite of depression?

instead of feeling nothing

i feel entirely too much.

too much of the impact of

tragedy and love.

i am riddled with shrapnel

from the collision of

bad and good.

i am wounded but

i am bleeding compassion.

it’ll be alright.

everything will be okay.

don’t worry, baby.
