Mind On Fire Living With Depression

Depression comes up whenever someone hurts you so bad,
Comes from the words of those cruel people,
And from those who physically abuse you.
Sometimes you just have to cry it all,

Darling, Just For You...

Oh my love you are missed so much,
Within these walls a constant thought.
Sweet thoughts with you, gentle and soft,
The softness I keep thinking of.

No man has relished more than I;

There were lows and highs
In between I found trapped in ties

Almost Lost My Love.

Its a pretty day today, I love days like these because the cold soothing wind that blows is a reminder of you being by my side no matter what comes. The clouds that shelter me from the sun remind me of how the thought of you keeps all the dark memories away. The slight rain feels like your kisses filled with love and compassion making me sure of good and kindness in this world
But today isn't a pretty day although it's like the ones i look forward to the most, but just like most things i ruined it.
The clouds are darker than i remember and the thougts they bring darker still.
The slight rain mirrors my eyes and no matter how much the clouds and I cry we cant wash my guilt away.

Love is sometime from one side only.

Covers the formless heap. Reprieves, delays,

Where its black body cut into the sky.

The Shadow Kitten

There's a funny little kitten that tries to look like me,
But though I'm round and fluffy, he's as flat as flat can be;
And when I try to mew to him he never makes a sound,
And when I jump into the air he never leaves the ground.
