Hung Out To Dry


by Dylan Cusack

The feeling of incompetence is overshadowed by despondence

Questions cause annoyance, not much in the way of respondence

 

Feeling consistently rejected and unintentionally neglected

Instead of being dejected, just trying to feel connected

 

Nothing’s said outspokenly as people are untrustworthy

Exercised in futility, irrational hostility

 

Fed up clutching at straws only to find lost cause

Acting devoid of flaws, but feeling full of withdraw

 

Done with feeling dread and tired of seeing red

Fed up of being spoon fed all of the things that have already been said

 

Walking home slovenly, yet somehow feeling solemnly

That if you convince yourself intently tomorrow might play differently

 

But acts are consequential, you’re just avoiding the inevitable

You’ll wake up feeling dreadful and bad thoughts will be a headful
