an accurate portrayal of a loathsome creature

i wish i could be buried with this post
peering at myself sidelong
i appear weak and ugly
melancholic, lost to hope
inspiring disappointment
and poorly concealed pity
deliberately a degenerate
debilitated and dishevelled
having vainly dispensed of dignity
here i see the value of humour
genuinely self-deprecating
at the expense of pride and 'good'
such traits manifest
a loathsome spectacle
contemptible, by my very nature
anxious and neurotic
an ignominious louse, willingly
shuddering in the freezing gale
naturally, for better or worse
i will endure this fate eternally
in apprehension and despair.

An accurate portrayal of a loathsome creature

I wish I could be buried with this post

Peering at myself sidelong

I appear weak and ugly

Melancholic, lost to hope

Inspiring disappointment

And poorly concealed pity

Deliberately a degenerate

Debilitated and dishevelled

Having vainly dispensed of dignity

Here I see the value of humour

Genuinely self-deprecating

At the expense of pride and 'good'

Such traits manifest

A loathsome spectacle

Contemptible, by my very nature

Anxious and neurotic

An ignominious louse, willingly

Shuddering in the freezing gale

Naturally, for better or worse

I will endure this fate eternally

In apprehension and despair.
