The Great Dark Hole
The great dark hole yaws open,
calls to you,
it’s black siren song familiar,
always there, just at the edge of your sight,
a reminder of your failed journey,
an evil magnet pulling you
from the journey ahead
About this poem
“Where is your depression?” a reader writes. “You wrote of it so often, and now you don’t”
Oh, it is there my friend. It never leaves. At times (like now in the midst of my joy at being an unexpected newlywed) it is beaten back, but even on the best of days, it lurks, waiting for its opportunity to draw me back into its dungeon.
The battle never ends.
