and then...there are days...

there are days
when you just don't feel like your
heart
can take any more...

and yet
it feels empty.

it is void
numb
null
useless
and yet
deceptively
full...
{of echoes}

and then there are days
where you just feel like giving up
like giving in
like throwing your hands up in the air
like relentless guilt
like wallowing despair.

and all you can do is
pick
yourself up off the floor
and dust
yourself off...

prop yourself up for another round.

days like today.
