is this madness ascending?
what else could explain
the irritation I feel
for an early morning
wake-up call, your voice
crating on my nerves
this anxiety rising
the desire to distance
myself from you, the need
to escape, isolate?

my mood is tainted
I am the rain, falling
the dark clouds, smothering
I am darkness, surrounding
and all I want
is the comfort of my bed
