“Move, Stardust!” a poem by Drem about toxic friends

stardust-retro
The inspiration to “Move, Stardust!”…  Ever meet someone who feeds off your misery? Ever meet someone who is only happy when you’re unhappy? And, who constantly complains about his unhappiness yet does nothing about it? I unfortunately do. It’s one long conversation of  self-loathing I need to listen to reluctantly every now and then. When he calls I don’t think he even knows I’m there. I think he talks to air about his never-ending everything is wrong and nobody understands me issues. And what makes it worse, is that there are ways for him to change his circumstances… yet he won’t do them. I try nonetheless. But, he only wants me to be a sad speck of stardust like him. He only wants me to be a sad speck of stardust like him.

 

Move, Stardust!, a poem by Drem

June 22, 2015

“Change the way
your brain
acclimates
to each situation
and your life
 will be better.
Anything is better
than the same.
The monotonous nonsense
you claim
that rolls in
will dissipate
and some new glitter
will come up
that inspires
the ghosts
that died in you
long ago
to get up
and move.
You never move.
You sit in
your own shit.
You feed off
my loneliness.
And pride yourself
in your twisted
self-loathing stance,
and pride yourself
in your twisted belief
that the whole world
is against everything,
each and every
speck of stardust
you are made of.
Okay, you aren’t that special.
Okay, you aren’t that unique.
Okay. Fine.
But you still need
to move
either on
within yourself
or out of my way
because I need to grow
and get the sun I need.
So I can grow
and keep living.
I can’t turn into you.”
