Poetry on Depression: An Expression less talked


Poetry on Depression - MeenalSonal



Am I so complex in expression?
Why do people always act in suspicion?

I am same soul with heavy heart,
which is drifted from you miles apart.

Come, listen to me, hold me tight;
I am too fragile and things not right.

I am in dark, show me little light;
be with me in intermixed emotional plight.

Yes, I am depression, less talked,
Discussed more and often laughed.

Monstrous in size though it looks,
but emerge as a fighter of hooks.

A calm demeanor adds courage,
letting go attitude shall surface.

Tattered thoughts just cannot withstand,
with positive hoot that all over rang.

  4. I think you have really captured the essence of this quote. I can also really relate this poem as I also struggle with depression and find intimacy to be very difficult even in regards to everyday social interactions

  8. This was such a true description of depression. It isn't taken seriously and often treated with contempt or as a laughing matter. Why be scared of it? It's natural.

  11. Very well expressed thoughts in this short poem. There are many people who still think that it's a topic not to be talked about openly and I don't understand why. Writing about it is a great way to spread awareness.

  12. I have seen my best friend suffer from depression and how hard it was for me to talk her out of it. It took time. Sometimes all one needs is a shoulder to cry on and someone to listen to them .
