Depression - Poem by Billy Loving

No one to love or care
Pendulum of my mood, it swings
Overwhelmed with loneliness and despair
Razor sharp sadness it brings
Sitting alone lost in thought
Visions swirl within my head
A brief respite my heart has sought
So many words of kindness left unsaid
No expression of want
Uncaring souls all around
Melancholy continues to haunt
No peep, not even a sound
Tears begin streaming down
Their dampness blotting the ground
