When I Am Depressed

When I am depressed
I float in self-pity
I roam in fantasy
I bask in solitude

When I am depressed
Thought of God bores me
Thought of family irritates me
Thought of life bores me 

When I am depressed
Doctors question than test
Doctors suggest than prescribe
Doctors philosophize than treat

When I am depressed
Self-confidence eludes me
Self-worth evades me
Self-criticism controls me

When I am depressed 
I loathe your presence
I detest your concern
I NEED YOUR LOVE

    Ah yes the endless test, however when there remember you share a very large space with so many souls. And to your final line..it is mine..so know... I know nobody that I do not give unconditional love
