Depression is an awful disease that kills through the person or the subtle effect of the hours spent in dispair. Medication and God help but neither is a cure all...


Grave Dancer
I’ll dance on my own grave
in the still moon light
They’ll say I lived 57 years,
correct them I only made it 55
As I lay beneath my prancing feet,
at hell’s gate many a friend I will meet
Maybe finally we will understand
The madness that pursued us
right up to the end
Ahh…the medication is
kicking in
The tension is easing
I think I will take a moment
And call a friend
Together we can praise God
Because we made it through
Another day of living with the pain
And darkness we didn’t choose.

Your level of empathy is revealing. The meds help but WE wish there were another way. Well penned. M.TRue

I am lucky enough to know why I get depressed and can pull myself out of it just as quickly as it hits because I refuse to let it win but I also understand like any disease it hits most people like a freight train - like my fav. Michael Jackson says " You are not alone - I am here with you- though your far away - I am here to stay" thats friendship my friend and I am here when ever you need to talk.

Such sincerity in these words, with all the raw emotions and the reality of thoughts as they inhabit our mind. I feel sadness and hope when I read this poem. Hope to read you again soon...

Dealing with depression is like falling into a bottomless pit. Your deep poem resonates with so many... who have walked there before you. Keep making it through another day, brave lady. Joy L. Hale

Living with someone with clinical depression can be a challenge as well-- kind of like walking on eggshells all the time. I forget sometimes to put myself in his shoes. It must be terrible. Thanks for giving me some insight into it. --Charlie

Oh dear. I am so sorry for your pain but I believe expressing it with your heart in these words provides some relief to get it out. I know when I feel blue some of the words I write bring the tears that need to be released, simply by composing them. Just about soaked my keyboard when Petey left us. Spring is here and it'a time for renewal. You can't force happiness but it will happen if you give it a chance, just a little but at a time. Be well Liz. Love, Patrick

I feel sad and numb, Liz. Some say depression is just a state of mind but i do have an idea how serious it can get and destroys a person's inner self. I wish everyone in this world was OK (a punch on the face of the moon, i know). Peace and love in Christ.

There's great and awful truth in this, and admirably you don't flaff or hold back; I can relate well to what you say, too well really.

The best poets wrote from inner pain.
I take quick cures with a pinch of salt.
Yet one person interviewed on radio 4 said that their depression was a monster until they became friends with it. Then they started to realise that the grey had turned to blue.

I can feel your pain and your sadness for I have felt them in the past myself. Depression is a life threatening illness that we can never ignore in those we love nor in ourselves. You are a great writer Elizabeth and we all look forward to reading your work for many years to come. Hang in there.

Dark indeed, like depression itself ... one can reach the depths of darkness and struggle so to see the light. So sad and so honest. Well done Liz! Hugs, Elizabeth

I love this title and the feeling and the openess. My heart goes out to you. When I feel depressed I find that a good, long, hard cry helps me release my pain. I hope yours is soon washed away. Hugs.

I used to scoff as Regis said, but no more. Sometimes you have to be hit between the eyes with a two-by-four. In these my later years I have a touch of this disease, not so much that it laws me low for long, but long enough that I experience total misery and understand how people can be driven to the extreme.

I flipped on the TV this morning, and someone was doing an inspirational spiritual speech. I had forgotten his name, I wish I could remember him for he was really a good speaker. He spoke of how one flower can stand out amongst a whole field of weeds, because it is not influenced by the badness surrounding its existence. The flower believe in itself and made itself grow. It wasn't thinking that because of where it was born, and the circumstance surrounding it when it was born, the flower paid no heed to that because it believes that it could make a difference just by its own strength, and made itself glow because that is how God wants it to be. - not its background, not its circumstances, but the will of itself with the help of God, because each flower is uniquely planted by God's hands, and you just have to make youself shine.

I wish I could remember this speaker. His name is Joel...somthing; perhaps you know him too.

Of course you are right, Liz; depression is an awful disease and yet many people still "scoff" at it as though it were an "imaginary" thing that sufferers allow. Very sad. I send you love, peace, and my best wishes,
