My personal struggle with never ending depression.


I've been drowning for as long as I can remember.

I never find a way to keep my head above water for long.

bubbles of oxygen find their way to my lungs and I gasp,

I have a moment of peace. A moment of warmth. A moment of clarity.

A moment where I forget that I was ever drowning in the first place.

I tread water and enjoy the calm breeze.

The reflection of sun beams trace beautiful patters on my skin. I'm glowing.

Then, the bubbles pop and I am immersed in the depths

over and over. The warmth ending just as quickly as it once began.

I'm struggling just as strongly before,

& I never know which direction is up.

I don't know how much longer I can do this.

Very deep. you describe it so very well, so real, that also people who don't suffer from depression can feel it.

I loved this one. It took a deep introspective that you recognized the results and then were able to put them on paper in a cogent well constructed piece. Great work!!!!!

Wonderfully done, I love it as much as the depth described therein. A nice, self-consistent piece of work that cycles pleasantly through its own multilayered course of events. Great!

You are definitely not alone! I know the feeling first hand and writing has been a great help. Check out my posts. I JUST posted about depression. I know some of my work is dark and gloomy, but that is to show myself where I was and how far I've come. It's also a way to show others they are not the only ones struggling. Keep your head up and keep creating! I'm here for you!
