Pietrina – “Colors of My Depression”

Today my depression is blood red
Bold and fierce, it is everything I am not
Commanding and directing
Willing all thoughts to focus on that one thing…. lack
It stares me in the eye and I lose the eye-lock challenge in seconds
It is all-encompassing and consuming
Lacing every breath and trailing every thought.
Yesterday my depression was pink
Peeking out from the shades of my happy moment and gently clouding my world
Stealthily pulling me back from laughing too much or even loving too much
Reminding me that I am just me
Once my depression was yellow
Pale, weak and unassuming
I could go hours and even days without minding it
Tomorrow my depression will be grey
Quiet, silent as if all is forgotten
Numb as if that will take away all the pain it has caused
Waiting patiently till another trigger comes along and it begins to turn slightly pink again…
My depression is all shades of colour

Hmmmmm….how painful the words captivate the souls hurt, it’s truth belies the sad smiles in our eyes.
Lovely piece Miss Piety
