Depression (part 2)

by ocuana

It's a self replicating virus and once it's inside us..,
It becomes the unstoppable force

Gotta seal up the spaces, even the loving places..,
The only way to halt its course.

And once you are completely sealed - with nothing of yourself revealed..,
You'll believe you averted disaster.

There's no irony quite so great, that once you've stopped this certain fate..,
You've already made him your master

Painfully true and so well detailed within your poem...
many attempt to describe depression, but your poem brings
us inside to feel the last word sealed.

Very well done, William - Mary Ann

    Thanks again Mary Ann.
    I've re-read it a few times and I appreciate your feedback.
    I'm not sure though that it's ever something that could be fully described but maybe we can all express a part of the greater picture (or curse).

Just so perfectly said brother hanged himself 10 years ago so the poem hit home.

    Sometimes we just don't know who will understand or relate to what we write, or feel something we also feel. If it gives insight into anything at all, it was worth typing in the first place, right? Your openness is welcome here Harry. My thoughts and my thanks.
