Depression


HE's blanked my Mind yet again,
Why cannot I find the words?
Has Depression taken hold once more,
With no Willpower to knock it to the floor?

I am depressed, I admit it now,
Writing poetry usually lifts my spirits,
But problems imminent there are,
And without answers my heart aint in it.

Will I be made homeless within days?
Or will it take weeks, or when? I say,
My future's in another's hands,
Should I cry, or should I pray?

My cable-tow is running out,
The noose slips around my neck,
For dismal lies the days ahead,
Is it safe to get out of bed?

This poem is difficult to write,
The gloom cloud hangs above,
If I could only find the strength,
To give my depression a great big shove.

    an honest poem
    sharing with all the world
    the terrible mood
    which sinks your heart
    like a giant rock
    in ten thousand feet of water
    but,
    a poet's task
    is to write poetry
    and tomorrow
    you shall create another
    fine poem (Report) Reply
