Mourning Myself

old self please come home.

don’t continue to roam.

you’ve been gone for far too long.

im trying to be strong.

i didn’t want or ask for this.

it’s not just something anyone can dismiss.

others miss me, i miss me.

when you left you left with my joy and personality.

my new self does not enjoy their mentality.

bring my simple life back.

when you return, remember to unpack.

i know i wont feel the way i did before.

but maybe i’ll at least be able to get out the door.


dedicated to everyone living with an invisible illness. i hope you feel content soon. i hope you’re coping well. you can survive everyday. i believe in you and i am so proud of you for continuing to live on.
