Deserted from world around,

Dark clouds of pain engulf,

Dreams far off from my reach,

Deep wounds of mind still raw,

Dwelling in misery,

Drenched in sorrow I say,

Darkness is my best friend!!

– HappySoul

Even while typing these lines, my mind somehow was telling this imaginary depressed person, to come out of his shell. โ˜บ๏ธ

In response to Sue Vincent’s write photo prompt. Prompt word is darkness. Please click on the link above for details to participate in this prompt.

I thank my dear friend Aashi Parekh for introducing me to Pleiades. In this form, there is only one word in the title of the poem, followed by seven line stanza. The first word of each line begins with the same letter as the title, and preferably each line has six syllables.

Gave this a try. Your feedback most welcome. ๐Ÿ˜Š

        On this topic though – Patient of post natal depression with my first kid. Thankfully not very severe. Could get over it in a year without medication. But fought with my thoughts everyday. ๐Ÿ™ƒ
