A. W. Nutter

Sympathetic voices
Whispering in the ear
Angels in remorse
Shedding their tears

Droplets of water
A mocking serenade
The darkened chamber
They chose to invade

Alone in the darkness
Depression transcends
Engulfed by wickedness
Prayers quickly end

Pleading for death
Ignored by the Trinity
In a reprobates path
On the edge of insanity

Consumed with fear
Overwhelmed with pain
Salvation for beggars
In hell I’ll remain

    Enjoyed this write. From someone that's gone through this and thankfully come out the other side, i have to say this is a very insightful piece. It is an illness that is unfortunately still little understood, which just adds to the 'alone' feeling and hell you so aptly described. Thank you for writing this piece, and many thanks for stopping by my work it's much appreciated. Best wishes Em :)

    Hi Anthony A vivid and real time description of the effects of depression. It is the cancer of the spirit and will take one lower and lower into dispair. If one can look back to the pivotal point where it all began and see the simplicity of beginnings and how chaos builds upon it, recovery moves quickly. Unfortunately the last stanza above is where the majority agrees by never trying to rise above it but instead giving in and accepting its devastation. Phenomenal read Love Cookie

    Wow you sure voiced out depression quite well here, Anthony-- I sure do hope this is not based on what you are feeling though-- excellent write, Anthony....hmm just a second thought, maybe some chocolate would help to provide endorphins :)

    Chocolate might help. I actually wrote this poem after watching a family member wrestle through severe depression. All is well now, thank goodness.
