When Depression Owns the Heart......... Poem by DARREL KINCAID

.......It's a depression so deep it finds a way into the Soul,
traveling through every pore of your Heart.

A depression so enlarged, it encompasses every bit
of your Reality,
leaving that Reality, a mere cloudy memory.

A depression so dense, it compresses every will
you once had,
bowing you down to accept that will, as it's own.

A depression so devious it takes you piece by piece,
consuming, each piece,

day by day.
A depression so truly disheartening,

it Leaves You,
with no other emotions.

A depression so dangerous,
it slaughters,


Of You.

    I'd like to add to this by adding that depression is not a feeling, it just is and once its there it dominates everything else. (Report) Reply

    Darrel, I tried to take my life not so long ago and I hope you are battling the demons of depression and that you are not alone. Thanx. (Report) Reply

    Only a person who has experienced such a depression can meaningfully write about it. Very wonderful done, Darrel! (Report) Reply

    Boy.. at one point or another i can say we have probably all suffered from depression. Your details are accurate. I like how it flows as though regular conversation.. the sound of the Y (as in E) is used throughout... i dunno if that was intentional but it was cool

    GOOD JOB! (Report) Reply
