Depression a Poem


It comes for you
sometimes it sneaks quietly
though you feel it wrapping around you
like fog engulfing you a little at a time

Other times it arrives out of no where
to tear you down into its inky black depths
sometimes you feel it stalking you
yet no matter how much you run
or try to get away
still it comes for you

Silently watching
never fully gone
the darkness receeds
the light returns
yet still it stalks you
sitting on the edges
creating shaddows
in your mind

You run
you hide
you do the dance of avoidance
but it comes for you
some will never know
the terror of that moment
the time when you feel the blackness closing in
some will never understand
nor would those who know wish them to.

It claims you body and mind
drowning in the darkness
till you can catch a lifeline
only to begin the dance
time and time again

Something I just wrote, I read something on a blog the other day about the feeling of how depression stalks you and this was born from that idea.


About heavenlyimaginings

A crafter from the time I was a small child. My love of crafting has developed into a passion for making Artist Original Bears, Scrapbooking, making fascinators and hair accessories, as well as dabbling in other bits and pieces such as making the occasional small bag. I craft on a budget. Try and reuse and recycle where I can (I wish I lived closer to a big reverse cycle garbage type place). In truth I play when I craft. It is such an adventure. Often do not spend time looking for tutorials and tips online preffering to meander though in my own way. After all if you do not know the rules then you have no problems breaking all of them. Have to be honest and say I truly love being pushed out of my creative comfort zone, as it is in those moments that you have to stretch yourself and your imagination that often you create the most amazing works of art. Also passionate about Spirituality. I discovered my psychic gifts at age 19 and have walked along the spiritual path for 19 years now.
