Depression

Depression

A Poem by Debbie_Philly

Depression


Depressions creeping in like a fog looming over the Atlantic

Dense grey matter choking so thick there is no air

It’s in the distance but the fog horn blows, a warning


Rolling in like a freight train with no way of stopping it

There will be no way to see through it only to wave

Your hands frantically in front of you for some direction


Depression's creeping in like a fog over the Atlantic

It’s a like a car crash waiting to happen, all you can do

Is wait, buckle up hold on and deal with the aftermath.

I would say this was totally an amazing observation on the characteristics of depression, I have been there and I know how it feels... Your choice of words, expressions and presentation all are perfect to create this excellent this excellent work... The ending part has been the standing part of this poem... You have metaphorically conveyed the true pain of a depressed heart... Well done frnd...

Sincerely

The black. The hole. The infinite gravity. I just want to pull the shades, kill the lights, crawl into a ball and grieve without hope on my bed.

It's something that is definitely real but it can be defeated also. I have fought it many times. When I think of how blessed I am and spend time in prayer it has the among the best results. Keep fighting the good fight--Levi

Last two lines SO TRUE! I never suffered any depression until a few years ago. Up until that time I thought "Oh, These people need to get over themselves". Once I experienced the loss of control over emotion(no matter what you try short of medication you can't dispel the madness of it) I understood. It scared me so much I was on my knees begging my heavenly father to release me from its grip. Thankfully several weeks later he did and now I watch like your poem says for the warnings. Since then I see the signs and surf the waves much better knowing I'm on the edge and it will pass as it does.
