Gloomy days and shades of grey,
promises long forgotten.
Words of pain leave scars that stay,
choices were ill-begotten.

Rays of sun obscured by cloud,
darkness overwhelms the light.
Stinging darts thrown by the proud,
add misery to my plight.

wanting relief
embracing belief
searching for truth
hunting for proof
needing someone
praying for sun

praying for sun...


Clouds depart, a ray of hope,
softness instead of what's cruel.
Hope is renewed, helping me cope,
sun sparkling bright like a jewel.

Depression cuts like a knife,
carving up pieces of heart.
I need something more from life,
desperate to make a new start.

needing true love
like hand in glove
wanting to please
seeking release
dreaming of more
opening doors

opening doors...



windswept summer days that never end
flowers that bloom and never die
hallowed paths to tread lightly
happy smiles deep inside me

happy smiles deep inside
hope for the depressed

An outstanding and inspirational piece, Tom. Very well written and hard hitting; I'm sure people suffering from depression really appreciate this one. The imagery that was joined with the poem really made an impact. I look forward to seeing more of your works, my man.
