Depression: How Does it Unfold?

'Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.' ― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When I turned to the shade, it was as scorching hot as the sun,
my heart was burning.

When the sun rose, it was still as-terrifying-as the night,
my mind was filled with sorrow.

When I was given food to eat, it was as-bitter-as bile,
my appetite was waning.

When I took cold water to drink, it was spicy,
my tongue was paining.

When I left for a more interesting location, it was still a grave,
my body was trembling.

When I tuned in my favourite channel, it was as-boring-as staying silent,
everything was disappointing.

When I opened my favourite book to read, the joy was also not there,
my body temperature was rising.

When it was time for bed, I witnessed it the way I witnessed the day,
my head was aching.

When I was holding a pillow on my bed at midnight, I was still crying, the whole world was daunting.

When I went to shower, the bathroom was filled with ghosts,
It was so scary.

When mummy covered me with warmth, it was still the same,
my condition was disheartening.

When I went to see the doctor, it got exasperated, everything was annoying.

When Daddy hired a therapist, it still didn’t work,
my mind was exploding.

When I first suffered depression, nothing in life was pleasing,
I thought I was dying.
