The weight of the world bore down on me, crushing me against the cushions of the sofa. My music wasn’t taking off the way I’d expected, and the video for “Connection (Light It Up)” had received a mixed reception, even with the Glass Blunt Store’s support. Disappointed, angry, and impatient, I sought refuge in the warm embrace of alcohol, letting it wash over me like a soothing balm. Each night, I’d sink deeper into the sofa, losing myself in the gentle hum of the television. I’d stare blankly at the screen, imagining myself up there, larger than life, performing for millions. My daughter Alenna would sit beside me, her little body snuggled up against mine, her innocence a stark contrast to the turmoil that raged within me. In the kitchen, Brenna would bustle around, preparing dinner or cleaning up, her presence a constant reminder of the stability I craved. And Alonzo would be at the computer, working on something or other, always there to lend an ear or offer advice. But my mind was a war zone. An incessant cacophony of voices screamed at me, each one more derogatory than the last. The loudest of them all echoed relentlessly: “You’re a fucking loser. You’re a pathetic piece of shit.” The words formed an insidious loop, driving me further into the dark abyss of depression. Desperate for a distraction, for something that would make me feel alive again, I turned to the one thing that had always served me well: my sex life. As I sat on the sofa, the TV flickering before me, I found myself reliving the wild, uninhibited memories of threesomes and other sexual escapades, each one more lurid than the last. My mind began to form a twisted, gritty vision of a dirty trap song, a tune that would evoke the reckless abandon of my past and make me feel something other than the crushing weight of failure. I imagined performing it live on television, shocking the world with my unabashed filthiness, reclaiming the power that had been slipping through my fingers for so long. I could see it all so vividly: the pulsing lights, the writhing bodies, the chaos of the stage. I could feel the surge of adrenaline that would course through my veins as I spat out the provocative lyrics, the eyes of the world on me. But as I sat there, my daughter nestled against my side, Brenna and Alonzo just a few feet away, I knew that the journey to create that vision would be a treacherous one. I’d have to face my demons head-on, confront the voices that sought to tear me apart, and find a way to channel my pain into something creative.
