Sickness

Sickness is thinking of
breathing into a cactus
because it seems
easier than drawing
breaths in a world full
of heartaches and breakdowns

Sickness is when your
loved ones are prioritised over
your anxious moments full
of discomforts and uneasiness

Sickness is when you
crave for attention that
won’t justify your worth
neither would it bring peace

Sickness is when you
try to wing regardless of
your jelly-legs, crushed spirit & rued esteem

Sickness is when you
weigh their pain to be
more valid than yours

Sickness is you neglecting you
while you’re busy being tipsy
and hiding behind a poem!
