Painting a Portrait of Depression

Depression is a villain
masquerading as hero.
Promising romantic rescue
as he brings poisoned wine
to lips.

Depression pirates your treasure.
burying faith, relationships, desire, work, adventure
beneath the unmovable rock of despair.

He woos souls with thoughtless caress.
“I’ll always be here for you.”
“You don’t need anyone.”
“I am devoted when others divorce you.”
“You can escape if you want to … but you
don’t want to.”

Depression grips with jealous isolation.
Till blood flows thick, and fear penetrates
The last barriers of reality.  Prying your fingers
away from the ledge of truth. I WANT TO LIVE!
