Hello, Depression…

Hello, Depression, my old friend,
Just when I thought I’d never see you again.

I wake up in the morning with a sense of dread,
An all-too-familiar black cloud over my head.

The start of the year was rocky at best,
But we were getting through it, a worthy quest.

I was happy. I was excited. I was overjoyed.
My goals for this year were being employed.

Then you came like a thief in the night
And the took the excitement, leaving only strife.

All the energy I had in past days,
Has all gone quickly down the drain.

I have no energy, no zeal, no drive.
I long for my bed, the covers and no hints of light.

Damn you, Depression, why must you revisit?
Why can’t you stay gone and just call it quits?

Until next time,

Anissa “Maddy” Walker
