Depression - Poem by Jinge Norvall

The shadow of the spectre looms..
Engulfing senses -
to inhale souls
teetering on the edge
of the abyss
of emptiness,
Where is the lifeline,
the thing to hold onto -
as the vacuum sucks in
the waning dissipating
sorrowing soul..
Who will hold it back
from the destructor's gaping yawn,
from the ever hungry jaws
of forever death?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem followed a crushing disappointment in my life that seemed to sweep away all hope.. however, poetry for me is cathartic.. & once a poem about my emotional state is on paper, the negative emotions are easier to deal with.
