    My Symphony

    My alarm awakens my depression. I turn to avoid the day, one I seem to be living over and over. The familiar tune of sorrow crows from the black box, however her pitch tells me today will be worse then yesterday so I hit the snooze button and slink back into bed in hopes of a 15 minute reprieve.
    Fifteen minutes passes and no reprieve is granted so sorrow sings again. Yesterday sorrow sang a solo the day before that a duet with loneliness. Today she is accompanied by a symphony of altos playing loneliness, sopranos playing despair, baritones playing brokenness, and the bass playing regrets. All under the direction of a wand less conductor know as me.
    My alarm awakens my depression. I turn to avoid the day, one I seem to be living over and over.

    I read your previous piece but I did not post
    anything because I did know what to say.
    My heart was just feeln' for you.
    I still don't know to say so I just
    want to give you a hug :grouphug: If that's ok with you.

    Much Luv to you.

    I sit here thinking what I could say that would change you tune from one of depression to joy. But your thoughts leaving me speechless but i definitely working on a reply. But for now I join 4everluv in the group hug.

    poet, i did not read quite as deep as others may have, into this piece....

    I have times like this too, where the hustle and bustle of daily life, just becomes monotonous....where a 15 minute snoozer, can be a short lifetime. whent the day to day escapade of work and the daily grind, becomes taxing and leaves the mind, body, and spirit weary, and depleted. When the world around you seems to be a war zone....i feel you poet, flo how you feel.....what is important is that we dont allow ourselves to wallow there too long.....
