A silent burden, so thick
of agony and pain…
Gruesome darkness, so stark
trapped in the criss cross of brain….

Fragile heart, so heavy
with the never melting rime..
As the sun, so dismal
it ceases to shine….

Silent screams of
hopes, dying in despair…
Lungs filled with ashes
gasping for air….

Apparitions of loneliness
creeping in deep crevices…
Life teetering on the
edge of precipice….

Dreadful devils of
slithering into veins
beneath the skin….
Ghoulish demons of
feasting on the soul
from within….

  2. Thanks for sharing. Very interesting!

    What brings me comfort is knowing that our Creator understands us and the debilitating effect that depression can have on our imperfect minds and bodies.
    Interesting point is the Bible does not suggest that God removes all our difficulties now. However, God does impart the strength to cope with “all things”​—including depression – Philippians 4:13
