Depression

A Poem By Damaris Ann // 11/29/2016

In deep darkness; my quiet place
A sloggish rest, a somber face
Pursuing peace in darkest hour
Bitter at this life so sour
A breach of joy this time has been
A time of sorrow prone to sin
A time for me to stunt or grow
Sorrow I reap when tears I sow
A haze, a fog, a blinded spree
Misty unrest is all I see
I wallow in this filthy maize
I cry alone; sorrow for days
A finger reaches to my eye
Tears are wiped, my eyes are now dry
I thank my friend who's comfort prone
For through their love I now am shown
That I can walk and find my rest
To have a friend is to be blest

"Sorrow I reap when tears I sow"... beautiful and deep line! This is an amazing poem! I love it and the meter is perfect! Sorry, for these past few weeks I've loved to get technical about poetry... never mind. Anyway, I love this!

My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Damaris, read this awhile ago and finally commented now.
Your rhythm has improved so much! This had a rocking flow.
I loved especially these parts:
A time of sorrow prone to sin
A time for me to stunt or grow

Misty unrest is all I see -"misty unrest"

and I love how in a few words you brought in the fact that it's important to have a friend and not walk alone.

Thanks for sharing your heart--hope that you can find great joy this month! :)
