Melancholy

Melancholy

A Poem by Emilee Grimm
"

Cyclothymia

"
I can feel it returning to suffocate me
I thought my cycle was over and I could go back to being normal
I want to be focused and pleasant
But this nothingness, this agony
Is coming back again
To haunt me
To clutter my sleep with nightmares
To dampen my everything
I can't escape it and I can feel it
I hate it when it is gone, but love it when it is here
I fear I will never be rid of it
I just want to be free
But still, I can feel it
Returning to suffocate me
I thought my cycle was over and I could go back being normal.

"I want to be focused and pleasant

But this nothingness, this agony

Is coming back again

To haunt me

To clutter my sleep with nightmares

To dampen my everything

I can't escape it and I can feel it"

The flow could use a little work but that is easily fixed with some punctuation. Read it out loud and put mark where you want the reader to pause. Imagine if you were reading this out loud. I love it otherwise! I think this is something that everyone can relate to, that sadness returning and you don't want it to. Great job the meaning comes through clear. I have only one question, "...but love it when it is here" What do you mean by this line?
