Bad Day

Written by: Pravir Dass

Today is a miserable day
Seemingly operatic in nature
But I feel it deep within me
I feel this void building up inside my chest
A malignant emptiness
The cause of my shallow breath

My tears dry in their ducts
Dapper attire cannot hide the discomfort
No one should see my pain
For any vapid empathy towards me
Would do nothing
But fuel this pernicious attack on my soul
