The sad

A beautiful poem on what it’s like to feel true sadness.

Depths of D.M.W. Lewis

The sad
It seeps into your blood, your heart, your soul
It never goes away
Even when you want it to
No matter how hard you try
A little while at best
They all say cheer up
As if it's easy
Like flipping a switch you've purposely neglected
If only
Your smile, the laughs, all the front guarding the tears of a clown
Riddled with the plague of blackness
No end in sight
It grows part of you
Almost, not wanting it to end
Pills and pro help
A gentle numbness
Fixing it as much as tape on the check oil light
You'd kill for a reset button
At least, in your mind

A little bit about moi: I am a mom, a nana, a sister, a woman, a friend, a human being…a youth counsellor, Family Life Educator. I have been working in the helping profession for over 25 years and volunteered in various capacities from youths to seniors. Tournesol is my nom de plume for haiku and other Japanese form poetry here at Tournesoldansunjardin I hope you enjoy reading through my daily waka. I also have another blog "Stop the Stigma" where I may stand on my soapbox now and then and hope it will become a place to drop in and share or comment on issues important to you. In that vein this could be a great way to learn from each other. Namaste!
