Depression

Depression

A Poem by

Let death close my tear washed eyes,
that have tired from long unanswered cries,
and put an end to this living dream,
where hope and expectation dies.

I have fought and I have lost,
against all with whom my sword I've crossed,
but this life; I never knew,
would incur such a heavy cost.

My song has changed in feel and tune,
from a spring morning to an autumn noon,
fading fast into a whisper,
to die in a silent winter soon.

Let no memories of me stay,
by the ending of this day,
do not call me to come back,
while I quietly walk away.

This is a poignant write . I like the lines and put an end to this living dream,

This has such a classic touch almost a "Thomas Hardy " feel that I can't help loving it.

autumns in life and poetry have their own and feel, and beauty too.. but they beget each other.. like a cycle
the spring has its own importance.. let it bloom ..when it comes into poetry, it comes into life as well.. be in good spirits
God Bless

Every person, every soul it worthy of being called back...so when you hear a whisper in the wind...listen and walk away from the sadness into the light of joy:) xxx

Depression can take a strong man down very quickly. Most of us walk the line of sanity anyway. A powerful poem. Sometime you need to walk away and re-gain the strength to battle again. A excellent poem.
