    Dear Sir,
    Nice one to read. Depression in love is the most biting feel of all.

    I invite you to read my poems and present your views on them.

    186. Moral Crime
    What you did with my heart
    Only used it for a flirt
    I thought
    You will feel my feelings
    Of sincere love
    And will be with me
    Even in the deserted time
    But you proved to be
    .......................

    Strong and gripping write, straightforward and relevant. I can relate to this as my own brother died alleged of suicide (but police suspect murder) and it took years for us to recover emotionally from the trauma. The battle is actually in the brain and the best way to fight this disorder is not with drugs, but with supportive friends and family, and the therapy of work. (Report) Reply

    Never succumb to depression. Somehow we should keep this villain at arms length! Meditating on God's love, associating more with fellow beings, reading good books, seeking expert help etc are some ways to resist the onslaught of depression's heinous attack! It is unfortunate that a flourishing talent succumbed to depression! Poignantly pictured, Jasbir! (Report) Reply

    This poem is really so touching. Losing Jiah Khan is a great loss for Bollywood industry as well as all her fans. Even I liked the films in which she acted. She was a really good actress, I must say.
    Depression is a truly painful feeling and the biggest problem is that ending one's own life at times seems to be the only option if it is really severe. (Report) Reply
