Image (c) 2009, Karla Dorman

closing the eyes does not
make one invisible
or problems go away

if you wondered where i've
been, that's where you'll find me
in depression's shadows

want to stay in the light
sadness pulls me into
the caverns of darkness

better for all of us
i stay away until
things start looking brighter ...

(c) 2009, Karla Dorman (7/23)

Oh, Luv. I am so often in the same cold and lightless cave. Some years. . .oh, well. Always crawl out, don't we!! Stretch our
aching limbs, straighten our spines, and have another go!! I love
you. Phyllis

Beautiful picture--and I hope and pray you are doing better. Depression takes the taste out of life.

Sometimes that depression can be shared and sometimes it cannot. Sometimes thoughts and time are what we need. Stay strong, Karla.

Everyone here feels your pain Karla. Staying away is not the solution. Patrick
Reviewed by Felix Perry
Depression in these days of financial insecurity and turmoils is easy to sink into and hard to climb out of but if it is any comfort you are not alone and many of us are in the same boat and without oars. If you have faith that helps, if you have friends that helps as well, and if you have the ability to write then that is even a bigger help but the sad truth is you are the one who can help yourself the most. Hope you find that ladder Karla...

some of the greatest writings are done during our darkest hours. Use the darkness to find the light. Good write. Lady J
Reviewed by richard cederberg
That, or write about it. Write about every detail, every feeling, every sorted nasty thing that comes out of you. And then share it. If people are offended TOUGH! Perhaps it could be a cathartic for you, perhaps your openness and honesty may help someone else. Perhaps healing and wholeness will flourish after the rocks and weeds are removed from the garden.
Stand strong!

Think, when closing your eyes, that you are within the darkness of a cocoon...when you open them again, you will be a butterfly flying away from the spider's web!
