My dog chased it's own tail

 

And I didn't laugh

The sun kissed my nose and cheeks

 

And I didn't feel it's warmth

From the coffee I drank this morning

 

Filled with the sweetness of honey and cloves I didn't taste

 

It burned my tongue

 

Only then did I want to laugh

The cup joined the other dirty dishes piling up

And....

 

I didn't care

 

Am I still a human being

If my heart is gone?

    Wow, so emotive. I felt such despair as I read the poem, but especially at this ending. Thanks for sharing

    the line about your dog chasing its tail, made me laugh thinking about you not laughing. I have days like this though, thanks for posting.
