Poetry Christmas Depression

I spent more me than I kept for myself.
I spent more money. Much more than I made.
I faked smiles, feigned laughter and while
My heart sought one thing, my body disobeyed.

Everyone is supposed to be happy.
I'm supposed to be happy.
Why? For what should I be happy?
Pardon the bunkness, but I'm feeling more crappy.

And this is every year.
Make that twice a year, come Valentine's.
This happens on my birthday, too.
Lonliness for me when the Aquarius stars align.

No one understands. No one cares to know.
Just don't mess up their happiness with
Your self-centeredness.
Don't ruin the holidays.
Just stay home.
Don't be around.
