Depression

by naaz   Jan 10, 2018


It is funny because I thought that this time
you were going to stay.
I had complete faith in you,
but you disappeared in your mischievous way.

I remember, when I was broken,
and like an unknown stranger only left to roam.
In the ghetto of your arms,
I found not only a house but my true home.

What should I do with this freedom?
Starting a new day doesn't sound like a lark.
You will always be like that flower to me,
which only blooms in the dark.

I am lonely without you. In this tranquility,
my life has paused since you are gone.
Depression, the black hole of my universe;
without you, my dreams have fully withdrawn.

    Naazz, I am sad for you from this write. As,sad as it is you really did a wonderful job expressing this and nicely rhymed also. People are going to come into your life, some will be there from now on, others just fleeting moments. Live those moments and move on. Hugs my friend-
