i’m so sorry i’m not sorry

i shouldn’t be here in this fucked up nightmare

a place as empty and hollow

as i feel within myself

you drove me to this

with your

incessant selfish victim mentality

and your

caustic, toxic hyde projection

the part that hides

in the bottom

of a poison vessel

it makes me fucking hate


i want to love

including you

and i’m so fucking sorry

but i’m not fucking sorry

i fucking hate myself

what kind of being worth anything

would do the things i do

feel the things i feel

say the things i say

i’m a turgid piece of shit

birthed from your disease

and i’m so fucking sorry

i’m not fucking sorry.

[This piece was culled from some journal entries made during a stay in a psychiatric hospital mid-2019, which was then the inspiration for a track by my experimental noise project Digressed Mind, on the album Things Of An Oppressive Nature. It deals with some very specific, raw and primal emotions I was trying to reconcile at that time, but also speaks to the universality of mental illness and addiction that so many people must deal with.]
