Struck Down Midday Midweek

It hits you like a truck
That parks upon your heart
A heaviness to pin you down
With very little cause
Forcing you to wander
Seeking a distraction
As if your mind is clear

A melancholy saps your will
You must drag to get things done
Not caring if you succeed
Expecting to fall short
A sliding step is all you have
Like a zombie from the grave
Brainless and macabre

You dwell upon a reason
Random weather has you down?
Maybe the deadlines
Created for you to fail
The end of a project nearing?
Bringing on a sense of loss
The triggers can be endless

So wander through the end of week
Waiting for your mood to rise
Food bland within your mouth
And all tasks a mountain high
Until you return to light
Always knowing the melancholy

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
