Black Cloud and Epidemic - Lou Harman

Black Cloud


Old friend

Wrap your arms around me

I want you to stay

Comfort me

Let me lie beneath your shade

Stifle my sobs

Console me

Absorbing sound like the sky before snowfall

No escape

Cocooned

A thick air

Muted

No echo

Entombed in silence

Still

No sunlight

Old friend

Comfort me


"There is comfort in the familiar. I find myself clinging to my depression at times as it feels like it’s the only thing I truly know and what really knows me. It feels like a huge part of me and I’m scared of who I may be without it, so I beg it to stay."




Epidemic


I know falsehood when I see it

And it’s in everyone

Everywhere



“People often pretend to understand or care and eventually you figure out, a lot of them don’t. I find this hard to cope with and so have (sadly) developed an immediate distrust in most people I meet.”
