#95 of 365 – 3 Haiku about Depression

3 Haiku about Depression

her shoulders drop with

the sigh of frustration; she

loves a depressive

fetal position

gut knotted, heavy fatigue

painful just being

thoughts of failure flood

accomplishments disappear

beneath the dark tide

    Oh, do I remember…not so many years ago. And these three haiku bring back powerful memories of a that time when I just “didn’t want to be,” didn’t want to feel, didn’t want to interact with ANYONE…couldn’t see any light. But the light could see me. walking, laughing even when it hurt, doing things for others, reading Humor books, writing in my journal…all of these things helped me. Meds…yes…only one med, but it, too, helped. Haven’t been depressed in years now. More to say…but not in this venue. *smile* Hang in there, the Universe has work for you to do,
