    Poem: Another Morning

    In this poem the author vividly describes how, when it hits, depression can dominate her life, but also how, through the despair, she retains a connection to her happier self.

    Another Morning

    Another morning just waking up to a sense of dread
    Mist fogs my view of the mirror
    Who is she I see?

    Heart is in a cage
    No longer even trying to escape
    Somehow that is even more terrifying
    Is it possible she died?
    No, the brain needs the heart to survive
    I hope that holds true for me
    That survival proves my heart is still alive

    There are sometimes flickers of life
    Voices in the white noise as I tune the radio of my life
    An evening spent in hope
    A jump into fresh water that feels like… fun

    Sometimes though there is only white noise
    The memory of hope makes despair even harder
    I feel like a house sitter
    This body is not mine
    I do not care about its outcome
    But I shall water its plants and I shall stop it burning down
    Because one day the owner may come home
