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.

Dear Valentine

Val' as you are,

Val' I engage.

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
