Morrissey Feels "Humiliation and Mortification" Over Canceled Shows

Morrissey took to his personal blog recently to apologize profusely to fans after cancelling South American tour dates due to food poisoning.

The post, titled "See the luck I've had," is incredibly candid and very melancholic. Take this opening line for example:

"I can't give words to the sorrow I feel at the loss of perfect Peru. Oh, black cloud."

But it seems the "black cloud" is less Smiths-style emo and more indicative of the alarmingly bad year the singer has undergone so far.

Back in March, the "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now"
singer announced that doctors had urged him to retire from music due to mounting medical ailments. 

And just two weeks ago he told Chilean newspaper La Tercera that he "almost died" after suffering from a bleeding ulcer, double pneumonia and Barrett's oesophagus earlier this year

After explaining the extent of his tour-postponing bout of food poisoning, he said:

"I know my luck too well. Sorrow replaces joy, and in every dream home a heartache. It could only be me."

The maudlin crooner went on to assure fans that he is seeking "expert supervision" for his condition and that his personal doctor assured him that he will be just fine. But it doesn't seem that the positive prognosis has lifted Morrissey's spirits.

"In the heat of cancellations and postponements, the humiliation and mortification I feel on a personal level is too mammoth to be measured," he said. "If my spirits climb down any lower I could never again find the dignity to stand upright."

He then ended the post with a clincher only Moz could produce:

"Alas, the dark shadow made the same journey.

"Each year of life brings us nearer to our decline, but I will continue to seek a listener until I'm dead in a ditch."
