The Overthinker

by LoneWolf   Apr 19, 2014

I am constantly chased by great depression.
I live through life with great aggression.

I feel cut off from reality as I'm slowly drifting and floating away.
I can't see anyone, nothing ever stays.

I can't seem to see reality anymore.
Gone away are my past feelings "De Amore"

I sit and stare, doing both without yield.
But in my mind I am free as I run through the fields,

Of vast crops no one has ever seen before.
In this way of life, I could never bore.

I live among people and figments of imagination.
For they welcome me with kindness and celebration.

I can do many things (although not all.
With imagination as my sword, I will almost never fall,

In battle against life's most aggressive ways.
This way of life has given me great days,

Of ways to tear out anger and madness.
A way to get rid of melancholy and sadness.

A way to remove negative emotion,
In which then all that is left is sweetness and happiness, vast as an ocean.

But reality tends to elude me, the wall is broken.
I tend to have thoughts quite outspoken.

I can't find the actuality in life that needs linking.
Perhaps there is not much to do except thinking, thinking, thinking...

    I see, you are great rhymer. That was well done. As far as the content. I think and I think and I think that I think, but I think that I'm not thinking when I'm actually thinking that I think. How else could I think when I think not that I think? would I then be thinking? Or would I not be thinking that I think? That's the problem with my thinking, I think that I don't think when I think, but in reality I think and I think and I think about what I think until I start feeling that I do not think. It's pretty sad. As I think, I do not think, I think.

    Anyhow, reality is starting to feel better day by day. I'm thinking a lot less. It's less exhausting. I can relate to your poem in the thinking. It was well written. But as any other poems, I think there's always room for improvement.

    First of all for anyone who has battled depression your choice of words have nailed it, and they will get it. The fact that it does not seem labored or forced speaks well to your skill also. If I might just make a suggestion or two 1. since you are rhyming your away/stays is a little off for the flow. 2. Unless you are on purpose attempting to make a connection to the Great Depression I would drop the capitals, I think it draws away from your message other than than Good Job I really enjoyed.
