Poetry

Ghosts of Depression Past

hidden in the shadows
linger in the darkness
moments of sadness
moments of dispair
aches of the soul
pain the heart
river of tears washed away hurt and sorrow
these are the ghosts of depression past
never out of sight
hidden in plain view
demons of the future
joining warriors of the dead
these are the ghosts of depression past
always around the corner
the distant oncoming storm
beckoning fingers
strangling hands
these are the ghosts of depression past
