Mood Swings

An attempt to put the ups and downs of depression into verse …

Bright skies, natural highs,
Summer haze, happy days,
Good things … mood swings
Dark cloud, not proud
Guilt, shame, down again
Life’s shit, deep pit
Break down, sink, drown,
Gasp for air, nothing there,
No hope, can’t cope
Tunnel light out of sight
Ranting, railing, falling, failing

Life’s exciting, life is frightening
Life is thrilling, pressure’s killing
Life’s a breeze, life’s on its knees
One hour flying, next one crying

How now, selfish cow
Just pull yourself together now
Damn and curse your indulgent verse
Others cope with much much worse
Depression bout? Leave it out!
Don’t know what the fuss is about
