Sadness

 

A deep and utter sadness

has knocked me from my feet;

don’t know quite where it came from --

the devastation is complete.

Everything seems monochrome,

going easy on the white,

a black and grey so deep and dark

it kills my will to fight.

I’d like to curl up really small,

sleep until it fades,

but it won’t be going easily

it loves these escapades.

I’ll rub my eyes and try to clear

the thoughts of so much gloom

but my mind has been possessed, it seems,

by some impending doom.

Melancholia is on the rise,

happiness has fled,

if this is going to carry on

I’ll put my mind to bed.
