Sadness eats her weight in ice cream
And binges for hours on Gilmore Girls
Because she has no one to talk to about her feelings
Besides Microsoft Word.
She lies in bed awake for hours
Trying to find the will to move and do something
Other than thinking about how everything feels empty.
She drives late at night and listens to Little Chief,
Because she can’t take the silence.
She waits for something to change,
But can’t bring herself to change it.
Sadness needs a friend to wake her up in the morning
And drag her out of bed.
She needs someone to remind her that everything happens for a reason,
And she won’t feel this loss for forever.
She needs someone to bring her back to the present,
So she doesn’t remain stuck in the past.
She needs Joy.
