Depression *revised*

by Britt Zimmerman

Just one more breath
One more day
It comes and goes in waves
The pain like a toothache
in my heart
Just one deep sigh
let in the good
escape the bad
close your eyes
and watch the lights spin
in my mind
over and over and over
It never strays
too far or too long
follows me like a child
winding down staircases
to the deep dark recesses,
Basements of the mind
filled with evil things
and spiderwebs
shadows that lurk
and sanctify
my lust for you
It creaks in my bones
sucks up every ounce
of humanity
makes the bad dreams
come to life
spills the blood upon the floor
and sends transparent glowing images,
faces staring from deep corners
and dark crevasses
landing heavily
upon my chest
Just one more breath
and the pain will subside
but the memory stays
In living color
Another independant film of sorts
embedded in the mind...
