somedays i get overwhelmed
all the things
i must
should
want to do
yet never get around to
too busy
too tired
too stressed
at the time
bogged down
by life’s demands
feeling guilty
for wanting to relax
and have fun
due to all these things
that must be done
feeling angry
for not having the energy
or interest
or drive
to make it happen
finding myself
retreating instead
into my weird little world
of art
where every creation
seems like an accomplishment
every little compliment
building me up
rather than tearing me down
feeling successful
in this little bubble of creativity
instead of feeling
like an incessant failure
more leaves to rake
more walls to paint
more pets to tend
more stuff to mend
engulfing me
until i no longer breathe
so i take another dose
of relief
behind the screen
and escape
