This is the time of year when I battle depression. It will go away, it always does. But for now, it comes to visit me again.

Depression’s come to reminisce;

speaking in low whispered hiss.

Sullen eyes; he’s dressed in black;

Runs cold fingers down my back.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Spewing lies I’ve heard before;

convincing mind to listen more.

Take to my bed; for days I sleep;

dark lover’s arms; my soul keep.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sings woeful song into myears;

takesdelight in my sad tears.

knows this season lays me low;

he comes, with sorrow to bestow.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I will not breathe fresh air till spring;

When light returns like golden ring.

The sun will evict unwanted guest;

Who steals smile; and gives unrest.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Till winter’s gone with skies so gray;

I fear his taunting will with me stay.

Memories of spring time I will hold;

Dreams of warmth instead of cold.
