The Great Depression And Halloween

Sometimes a great depression rises up from with in my being                                                   And whatever light I possessed is swept away in endless waves of dark shadows                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Until my heart feels hollow and empty                                                                                     As if the spring will never come and my heart will never care enough to love again                      My God even the light hath forsaken me or I unwittingly have forsaken the light                                         I know not which casts  me into this chemical imbalance but the lesson is learned                      All men are not created equal and there's nothing I can do about that                                             But fight on against my ancient enemies                                                                                   Like a blind man crossing the freeway on foot                                                                                 P.S.                                                                                                                                                  This halloween I'll go as myself.Beleave me that's  scary enough!

    They say that all men are created equal, but some are more equal than others.. Don't ever lose hope - love comes when you least expect it. Happy dreams... Lucilla

    oh, my, that last line is sad!!! I can see you suffer from depression like my husband. It's a hard thing. I KNOW. Is it worse for you as winter nears? I am not a depressed person but I find myself very melancholy as summer fades away. I liked your writing here.
