stark, cold, clinging
looming & palpable
intense, cutting, infernal
the anguish of depression is

knowing it’s coming
feeling its chill creep into me
taking charge
a change of guard
the mental mongols have arrived

here it comes again
no idea how long it will last
how deep the wounds will be
how profoundly it will infiltrate
who will i become

depression attacks
no mercy comes my way
i am rendered despondent
buffeted by the hot wind of torment
the hostage of my mind
