Depression

dissolve the life from within me
you crawl inside of my mind
you want everything
you took the little i had left
you left me with nothing
you left me feeling empty

for you are just hidden in my mind
wait for a perfect time to attack
to take all i will have worked to gain back
i hear you in the back of my mind
whenever i am stressed or angry
i feel you grow

and you will rob me of it

This is supposed to be a sad poem. To all intents and purposes, the subject couldn't be more dismal. Yet it carries before it a sense of morose humour, very reminiscent of a later poet, Hilaire Belloc. The rhyme scheme tends towards the comic opera, and the final stanza removes Death to a different stratosphere. Either that, or I'm spending too much time reading poetry.
