Nathan McCool/Mists of Melancholia

Mist of Melancholia

I can no longer recall the amount of time

that I have wasted,

collecting dust on my skin,

waiting for one more god damn thing

that really means nothing at all.

Too much though.

Too many nights lying on my back

In a drunken stupor clutching

an old acoustic

And cursing at caricatures I find in

cigarette smoke.

Do you really know?

Do any of you have any god damn idea

what it’s like to live with this kind of mind?

People can keep calling me a genius

or an artist or a son of a bitch.

But the real truth of it

is that I just hurt more

than anyone knows.

Even now

“Christmas Card From A Hooker In Minneapolis”

just collided with the memory

of a sloppy suicide

committed by a good man

just too strung out and lonely.

You think you know what it means to hurt?
