     S.A.D. ( Seasonal Affective Disorder)

A grey fog shrouds the land,
it suffocates my soul.
Depression falls like the rain,
pulling me into its hole.

No spark of sun nor glimpse of blue,
grey is all I see.
The sky, the earth and myself.
The grey is inside of me.

Winter blues, it has a name.
Aptly fitting I'm sure.
As I sit here sadness reigns
and begs me for a cure.

Come out, come out, come out and play.
Ignore this weather, unkind.
Push the darkness far away.
At least out of your mind.

Easier said than done that is.
The grey reigns over all.
So as the rain falls to the earth,
likewise, my teardrops fall.

    Beautiful rhyme Francine:-) I think SAD affects many people Francine I know I feel much brighter and when the sun is shining.. the dull days of winter seem to last forever ...but we can write poetry about summer and blue skies and hopefully feel uplifted:-) hugs Jan xx

    Such a sad piece but beautifully crafted. This flows smoothly and paints this sorrowed picture so well.
