Struck by depression…



Jun 24, 2008
eat me
defeat me
then spit me out
step on me as I scream and shout
drag me by my hair
my skin ripped and the smell of blood spread into the air
leave me to bleed from head to toe
after you've struck me with a final blow

someone walking along on the cobblestone ground
hearing a smothered sound
turning to the left to see what it is
could hardly be much more red than this
a big stain of life's juice
a figure lying there covered with wounds and bruise after bruise

a hand slowly reaches out to this human being
sighing in pain and eyes just about seeing
helplessness in both voice and look
alone in emptiness like the cover to an unwritten book

hand meet hand in a moment of silence
safety and relief in a new sense
carried on strong shoulders to a house nearby
treated with kindness during hurt and cry
food on the table to sooth both stomach and mind
smiling faces and friendly voices to leave sorrow behind
