Melancholy blues

That heavy head feeling you get, 

compounded by the despair 

and gloominess that crept in. 

Silent, invisible, yet palpable


Post-bacterial blues, 

long after the sore throat 

has gone away.

It just sort of lingers; 

maybe it’s lonely, 

or likes my company.


In a crowded room, 

yet somehow alone, 

I sit and ponder-

how did this happen?


I mean, I’m not unhappy, 

and life has been good, 

in its own way. Is it okay 

to say, go away?


Somehow this germ, 

with its crafty guile 

has robbed me of the 

strength to smile.


Yet today, I feel a shift,  

the tide is turning.

Slowly, surely it has left, 

disappearing into the vortex.
