Dancing With the Devil.

Dancing With the Devil.

A Poem by Mimi

I'm spiraling

Down...

Down...

Down...

Deep into my depression--

It's where I belong!

In a dark abyss

 

Leading me down an unlit path

A path with the Devil waiting

With arms wide open

Beckoning for a bargain

My soul for happiness

 

Happiness...

 

What would I give to feel it?

To feel anything at all

I take his hand

He pulls me in

I'm trapped

Stuck dancing the tango

For all eternity

 

I'm spiraling

Down...

Down...

Down...

Deep into my depression--

It's where I belong!

In a dark abyss...

Deep dark writing you've created. Dancing with the devil can be dangerous. I used to play tag with him out in the streets, here in Los Angeles, CA.

Dear Mimi,

This is a wonderful piece of writing. I am watching you as you are beginning to flower into a marvelous poet. You are showing mastery of your craft, command of the language.

"Deep into my depression--
It's where I belong!
In a dark abyss..."

How aptly this captures the essence of depression. And the final stroke: "It's where I belong!", i.e., the acceptance of depression. No, more than that, the near welcoming of depression.

This is a fine piece of writing. Congratulations. High marks!

Best regards,

Rick
