A Multitude of Woes

Yes, there was a time
I was obsessed by melancholy,
I saw deep sadness,
The quality that so tormented
My former favoured idols,
Poets, painters,
Musicians, actors,
Creators of every kind,
As glamorous and romantic,
But it’s not,
It’s not remotely romantic,
When you yourself are adrift,
And weighed down
By a multitude of woes.
