again, it rises, that stupid sun,
trying to brighten my nurtured overcast.

no matter how i try -
roll over in bed, bury my head.

it still shines all optimistic.
go away.  leave me alone.

can't you see i need to suffer...?

suffer!

The title alone won me over.
And the rest.. sealed the deal.

God I do feel like this every time I go outside into the sun. For some reason even though I am a summer baby I am all Seattle weather. I love the greys and dark blues of the sky when it seems like it it is gonna rain.

i pretty much like all kinds of weather, Dee.
but, because i'm not enough of an outdoors
person i don't get all the sun i should.

that's another habit i'm working on.

thanks for the favs!

Don't be smudgin' my grey with your happy happy yellow, now...

Clever, Pip, as usual!

I wish I had time to properly cultivate a proper melancholy but just when I think I might have one under wraps to let loose, the Monsters come and stomp it out with all that rawr and 'get up, Mom!'...

*sigh*. One of these days?

I'm a lover of the sun, myself. But I can def understand this one. I have days when I want it to just go away and shine on someone else's sadness. Nice work, Pip!

probably, i should've put
in 'artist comments' that
the poem virtually never
applies to me, for my
fortunately being skilled
at compartmentalization.

if it can't be fixed, i
ignore it.

thanks, Rachael! ;)

Oh yeah, I'm generally that way. But every now and again, blegh...

And of course, mister! :)

haha, that last 'suffer' is great - i can just hear an overly dramatic voice shouting it in my head, waving its hand at the skies. but maybe that's just me.

we all feel a bit sorry for ourselves sometimes, i'm sure - and the universe isn't cooperating.

fortunately.

exactly, Hannele. the self-centered-ness
of the emphasis, faux humor and all.

me? i have a real problem with inanimate
objects and their lack of cooperation!
swearing helps a lot.
