It's just a powder... 

White Pressed 
and covered 
in an enteric-coated 

Altering my mind 
while chemically 
convincing me 
I'm well. 

Branded to fix 
all the dopamine 
and serotonin... 

In lieu of my 
over-indulgence of 
caffeine and melatonin. 

Side effects may include 
suicidal thoughts 
and/or actions... 

But misery also 
holds a certain level 
of attraction.

  1. You’ve described it perfectly. It’s difficult and strange sometimes to explain to people that SSRIs themselves can cause depression as a side effect. The dopamine rush from caffeine and in my case cigarettes is no longer what it was. These days, ennui consumes me all the time.

  2. This piece is so relatable. I’m on Zoloft too. Would love not to have to take it because I get the meh feeling too, but I think I’d rather be dealing with that than being chronically agitated as I was for the last 50 years without medication.
