The Shadows of Sadness

“One cannot describe how depression feels like it's too deep too vast. But having struggled through it I tried to describe how it feels like through poetry. Because I battled depression only by writing about it.”

I want to drown

under the enchanting waves

of drowsiness

Where reality is

the dream

that closed eyelids

yearn to miss

Where void is

a welcoming relief

from the pulsating sadness

refusing to leave

Where every emotion

is heightened

and lightened

under a comforting darkness

where every breath

is even and taken

to count the blessings

of a passing life

Where every moment

a silent heart yearns

for a forsaken wish

to Caress a forgotten bliss
