intentions: a poem // cheyenne barton


no one expects it to last this long it makes you feel like you are not working hard enough at this whatever “this” is that you are not pulling hard enough at the seams that there is something you are just not grasping and if you could reach a little farther then maybe— maybe what, exactly? [deep sigh] “everyone goes through shit.” oh— you are, at once, relieved and irritated relieved that you are not, in fact, insane irritated that your pain is less is spread even has been delegated to the masses without your permission you, my friend, have been hollowed out. everything is well intentioned. nothing is well done. (subtitles in progress)

  12. Honestly anxiety is so frustrating especially when you feel that you're stupid and alone inside and then you have nobody to talk about it too…
