Depression is asphyxiating in negativity; it saps the joy and energy from you and won’t leave you alone. It makes you hate yourself. Finding the energy to face the days is hard. Yeah it’s been one of those days; one of those weeks. But there is beauty in every life, beauty I will always hold onto.
I walked head first into the blizzard’s blow
I stood alone suffocating in snow.
I felt the numbness growing in my bones
And the chill gnawing my fingers to blood.
I heard the wind whsitle its wistful tune
In my heart which longed to meet you soon.
Now if I meet you I know I shall be free
Of all this snow that has encased me
And to beautiful stories we shall tend
When the camera and pen come to blend
And if you have another hour or more
Shall we go and dance amidst the snow thaw?
Time is short, alas we’d soon have to part,
But with you spring will come and a fresh start.
I walked head first into the blizzards blow
I collided with you in the evening glow
And felt the blood warm again in my viens
felt feeling returning to my bones again
An avalanche that returned joy to my face,
Shedding snow in a thunderous embrace.
Now I have met you I know I am free
Of all that snow that encased me
Forever stories we created sing
Of beauty we find in feathers and wings.
So if you had another hour or more
I’d have loved to dance amidst the snow thaw.
I can’t bare the pain as again you depart
But with you spring came. And a fresh start.
