I want to burn my heart away

Through miles and miles of travel, stay

As far from comfort, love and loss

To bury the ache and shoulder my cross

I want to be breathless with loneliness

Leave me here and

Please just f o r g e t  u s 



They say it’s ‘drapetomania’
I call it discontent.
I’ve let ‘wanderlust’ invade
With its courteous malintent.

Sometimes it’s ‘lypophrenia’
With its curious shadowy form;
And disease causes ‘dysania’
(Why can’t I make it out the door?)

Whatever word you call it,
‘Sadness’ works in its place.
Someday I aim to feel happiness instead,
Or ‘joy’- or ‘passion’- or ‘grace’.
