21. The Deserts of my Depression (Poem)

Most people fall into pits of depression.

What I have fallen into is something completely different, however.

It is not a pit, per say,

But, more like I have fallen off a cliff.

I have hit the bottom,

A floor of sand.

And once I examine my surroundings

I see an openness of desert sands

As far as the eye can see

The sun is hot on my skin

Salty drops of sweat drip over my eyelids

Burning my eyes.

I am, for some unknown reason, barefoot.

The hot sands burn the soles of my feet

It hurts to stand

But if I sit then I fear that I will not be able to stand back up

My limbs feel too weak to do much

They hurt and yell with aches from the fall

Bruises and cuts cover my body

My head throbs from the thoughts that haunt my mind

I am confused.

I am numb.

I have gone numb from all this pain

Mentally and physically

My head hurts\sometimes I disguise my pain with fantasy

But now I cannot separate my dreams from my realities

It feels more like a boiling ocean really

The heat drowning me, heavy and hot.

Depriving me of the oxygen I need if I ever want to clear my head.

I need to get away from here

But the only other direction to head is into the sandy unknown

And that scares me

How do I get away from this place?

I can’t take it anymore.
