Depression

Depression weighing heavily
on shoulders never strong enough
a slow, sad rain falls endlessly
as your perfect world falls apart

regressing to sweet days of childhood
when all that you perceived was good
for your mother took the sadness and the pain
and kept you warm and dry within the rain

and magically, the hurt would disappear
but now the pain draws near
for the circle always ends complete
and lessons never learned repeat

but this time you must pay the price
for mother can no longer bear
your pain
