The Abyss is My BFF

Darkness has come to envelope me.
The Abyss wiggles her eyebrows and offers me tea.
“Not again!” I shout into the endless void.
And She says “Time to steal your last drops of joy.”

I take a sip and rattle at the sour taste.
Thinking of all the years of my life laid to waste,
With Her pummeling darkness and Her painful cloak,
Wrapped around me until I’m about to choke.

And she says, “Let go! And let me take you away,
“Turn all of your hopes and dreams into decay.”
And I fight and I struggle to breathe once more,
Going through this every month is such a fucking chore!

Happiness tries to reach me, so close but not enough,
No matter how hard I fight, this Bitch is tough!
The Abyss wraps me tighter in Her dark embrace,
And laughs as I scream and cry in Her face.

And then She lets me go, without so much as a sound.
Not a whisper of why my life is still around.
And then I gather my broken pieces like a fucked up chef.
Knowing full well she’ll be back,
Because the Abyss is my BFF.
