Lady Depression

by Natalie   Aug 20, 2013


Your entrance is majestic; it takes you seconds to settle,
You have been here before; you have walked these tears,
But never has your presence been so pronounced,
Never have you overtaken the territory for so long.

Please let me hope.

Dreams used to populate this area,
Laced with smiles, hopes and wishes,
Swirls of multicoloured lights which,
Brightened the monotony of grey life.

Please let me dream.

Reminding me of my fears and loneliness,
You plant a consuming darkness in me,
Overriding every positive prospect whilst
Plaguing my mind with thoughts of death.

Please let me breathe.

Attempting to entice with words of hate,
Despicable games you play with my mind,
Convincing me that I will never find happiness,
Seducing me to an end with words of suicide.

Please let me live.

Unclench your nails from my wretched soul,
Angry lady I will not let you define or control me.
My pain will dissolve; my heart will grow stronger.
I will no longer be consumed by your torturous emptiness.

Please let me be free.

I need to be free.

I will be free.

I am free.

    Hello natalie,

    yout talent is remarkable and for me a way to imagine the emotions in every word.

    Your entrance is majestic - makes you feel joyous, but this is snatched away and the reader is then taken on a journey of dispare and fear of death.

    I love the way you taper the ending. This gave me shivers - the shear desperation of the pleas.

    Wonderful work as always. xxx

    I have been reading this piece thrice,, it is always puzzling my mind, to whom this piece is addressed, to a man or to a woman, but then i finally figure out that this belongs to a woman, whose spell is intimidating that somehow you need to be free from its casts, your struggle gives you a price of your freedom..very inspiring piece Natalie...you show in another way on how to win the game.

    I like the way you use repeating patterns such as "Please let me hope" "... breathe" etc. It makes it more like a song. Its kinda difficult to make it work cause it has a tendency to make things boring but you definitely nailed it. All in all, a really good one. :)

    Depressions can be very painful. It does not go away so easily though it can be cured to a large extent. The way you have expressed yourself in these verses is amazing. Great Writing.
