Be A Balloon


Why can’t you just be cheery

This once?

When I’m feeling so damn down

Couldn’t you just pick me up?

Instead you tie lead weights to my ankles

And wait for me to drown.

You wait until I’m rock bottom

Then dredge the silt so I can fall further.

Why can’t  you be a balloon ?

    A poem that trips over the tongue easily but deeper thoughts in it too 😊
