There are a lot of poems that speak about depression on here, but this, this was extremely well written. I love the back and forth emotion, which is how depression really feels. This is definitely one of my favorites. Great work!
Although depression doesn’t start instantly and slowly creeps in before you realize you’re caught in its grip, your poem is quite the opposite and had me captivated from the start! Beautifully written in characterizing how this would feel.
Crikey. This really hits home. I'm sure there's very few people who haven't had such thoughts at some time or another, however fleeting. But what really got me was your hope that your 'darling' had never had such
thoughts. It's terrifying to think that we really cannot protect our loved ones from their own thoughts and we just have to hope they're able to resist acting upon them. Ever.
A brilliant write indeed. :-) x
