Depression

Depression turns
Physical

Not content
With breaking

Heart and
Soul and
Mind

It assaults
Flesh and bone

The very marrow

Its dark heavy sadness
Pressing down
Upon the head

Taking possession
Of every single fibre

Leaving the body
Restlessly ill

An unnameable
Sickness
That craves a clawing

The young man's
Self-harmed lacerated
Arms are red and raw

The only way he can bear
And feel the pain

We take different
Fretfully frightened paths

To escape the overwhelming
Onslaught

I have turned
To God in agony
At Gethsemane
Crucified at Golgotha

Abandoned
Surrendered
Taken down
Restored
