Moving On

Moving On

A Poem by Tim Butcher

Expression of how I feel even after almost a year since my breakup with my last SO. A couple friends have passed on, and even more friendships have shattered. It's been a pretty tough time.

I breath gently in the room
Feeling nothing within
Not anger, not sadness, not doom
My life, when did it get so dim?
Oh what a tragedy, what a joke
Since when was my heart revoked?

I stare forward at my work
I see my creations and my love
And yet all I do is shirk
Only a void is pressing from above
My grasp on reality slowly drifts away
Why didn't I try to keep it to stay?

I ponder on life, on things
I feel my soul be torn asunder
A pain, like a needle sting
Since when did I fail to consider...
Since when did I fall so far?
Deeper and deeper I drown
Innocence fading like a shooting star
Experience only dragging me further down

I breath gently in my space
I can only scoff and mock
Oh, what a disgrace
When did everything fall out of place?
I was like bedrock
Why did I drift down the stream?
Since when could I no longer scream?
This anguish, this despair
It'll be eternity before they repair

If you are still feeling this way after a year, I'd say you are in the clutches of depression. If so, please get help, because you are in danger.
