Depression- A struggle

Storm clouds, rainy skies
The dawn of a new day.
Heavy heart, weary sigh
The struggle continues again.

I try to get out bed,
but the ropes of despondency
are holding me down,
crushing, tugging, pulling,
in a bid to drown me in the waves of

I cry out,
I scream and shout,
But my voice is nothing but a silent echo.

Then suddenly a wave of strength,
washes over me,
empowering me,
so I prevail over the darkness once more.

As the sun rises at dawn,
Its a brand new day,
The cycle begins again.

Light and beautiful is all they see
But that is not all there is to it
If only they could look close enough......

The agony of losing you
Is like a broken china unfettered hopes
That sparked neons to my buds.

Slowly you begin to sprang
Like a woman yielding to her man
Your beauty is a bang!

Oh I love this life
Sorrowful harsh heartbreaking laziness all sort of
All and love it gives.
