You’re just an unwanted visitor that springs up out of nowhere,

Come anytime and have no face,

You bring along sadness and isolation,

But I won’t let you protrude my mind again.


Coming at any time anywhere,

School or home; like some kind of chase,

I’m the mouse and you’re the cat dying from starvation,

I won’t slip and let you catch me again.


I just want to be at a place where I’m lighter than air,

But you drag me down when I’m near that place,

I can’t escape you no matter my frustration,

I want to feel light again.


You give me thoughts I normally wouldn’t dare

But this is getting us nowhere,

I give up and watch you smile in satisfaction.
