The darkness of depression

All the colour in the world has drained away

I struggle on day by day

Desperately trying to keep my thoughts at bay

Bed lets me sleep away this nightmare

As I wake it all comes back as if in the air

I wonder if the hurt I feel is in my unsure stare

You said it would all be OK

And I really though it could all go away

And so I wait for this miracle day by day

You see I feel as if in a cage

The strength of which I cannot gauge

The sad fact is the walls are as thin as this page

It is my thought that keep me here

But it seem I hold them very dear

Even as I try to escape them they are always near

Why can't I let them go

They are what keep me pushed down so low

The falseness of them I now know

So I will continue to fight

But not desperately with all my might

But for inner peace and to be in the light

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
