During an episode of depression the waiting for the light at the end of the tunnel just seems to be too long.

A trigger: a thought, an untimely happening
creates a moment that becomes too much;
a heaviness
an obsessiveness
a rock bearing down on my chest

A secreted space of directness splits my head
filled with near impossible unhappiness
experienced in a second
that seems to last for hours

A moment of dislocation
dissipation
disintegration
fragments of echoed thought

After repeated time and incidence
back comes reality; slowly
back comes stability and
finally:  discharge and release
