By this point, I just want to go home
Spirit fallen below the waterline like a
Mid-summer dry spell; brush fire eminent
Neurotransmitters in a traffic jam
Words too clumsy to shuffle into sentences
Worn out like the sole of your favourite sneakers
Or the plastic horns on New Years Eve that won’t sound
After too many drunken, forceful blows

This drooping plant needs water
A good read and piano key therapy
Steaming tea or a stiff drink
Before it can put out any more flowers

This week felt like...not a week. :P Well I'll attest to the fact that good forceful drink will fix just about anything. :)

Piano key therapy AND a stiff drink -- there's nary a psychotherapist in the world who can match that.
