Join Us in Despair

You know when you were a kid and your diary was full of angst and woe-is-me-ness? That is what this blog is for. Lost your job, dog is sick, someone stole your parking spot, crashed your car, just generally glum? This is the place to put all that lovely grey and those long drawn out sighs.

Lists of sad songs. Depressing movie reviews. Top ten reason to stay in bed. All things not happy. Bring them here.

Are you sick, are you tired? Have you been sick & tired for a year? Share it here. Unhappy, gloomy, dismal, down in the dumps, miserable only. Did you have a bad day, a month... share. Not that tragedy and despair can't be funny, contributors are welcome to make their posts goofy, witty, laugh-out-loudable, just not happy or upbeat.

Would you like to be part of the DD&D project? Do you have a sad story, a rant, a poem of a lost love? Join us as a contributor.

when i die...

when i die
i hope no one who ever hurt me cries
and if they do cry
i hope their eyes fall out
and a million maggots that had made up their brains
crawl from the empty holes
and devour the flesh
that covered the evil that passed itself off as a person
that i probably tried to love

Oh Nickki,

Now this is some beautifully morose writing. Very well done and lovely sentiments. I think I will email this poem to my husband's narcissitc evil ex-wife.
