The calendar has holes

Where the months

Are supposed to be,

And it feels like one

Big day ever since

This year began,

Or maybe the last year

Never came to an end.

Daylight and darkness fight

For the negative space,

And there seems to be

No other choice

But to calmly embrace

The sensory overload.

A moth is no match

For the hurricane,

But there are some voids

That you cannot

Avoid falling into.

  1. I get this. So much in this piece is relatable. It truly does feel like the months just bleed into one long, exhausting day sometimes. The part at the end about falling into some voids being inevitable…so true. You have your fingers on the pulse of humanity in a unique way, Aaysid, and your ability to express your thoughts so eloquently is amazing. So glad to see a new post from you! Awesome as always. 🙂
