Weltschmerz



There are things I can't conceive.
There are things I can't control.
There are things I can't condone.

I am leaving myself behind
holding/carrying a poem made of dreams
and an empty suitcase
it took forever to unpack
of regrets.

I try to increase my potential energy
by climbing to the top of the hill—
but the hill! the hill!

The only chance,
to fill the rift
with everything I don't want,
don't need, with what
weighs me down.

What isn't there.
What is no longer there.
What isn't there yet.
