"And Sometimes"

And sometimes things fall into place,

only to fall apart again.

I crave the isolation -

lose all inspiration -


I let myself

just fall apart.

I cannot

fight this sadness any more,

so time to close the door.

Tomorrow may bring hope again.

Tomorrow is another day.

"Depressive State"

Again, the darkness closes in,

so suddenly,

stealing her sanity,

and motivation.

Her mind and world both spin.

She cannot win.

The thoughts, relentless, will not cease.

The tears, and then -

the emptiness.

She cannot function,

cannot breathe.

Depression and anxiety

hold her captive

inside her own mind,

and she can never leave.

"Chronic Illness"

internal, external

the pressure is rising


with no compromising

my body is failing

they call this "surviving"

the pain is persistent
