Anhedonia,

 

This melancholy haze

Has rendered me stunned, dazed

I can’t seem to remember when it began

But here I stand, deadpan

This melancholy mind

Beckons for me to walk blind

I’ve lost it inside, unable to find

 

This melancholy heart

Has begun to fall apart

Nothing has yet to sway

These unkind waves of perpetual dismay 

 

This melancholy life

I no longer wish to wife

 

I thank the grief and pain

For now, I’m numb, unafraid

The fog, everpresent

Death, now iridescent

 

The jump is made

In order to welcome the fade

My last moments of consciousness, I wade

Lost, alone

Cold shivers pierce to the depth of bone
