Banshee- A Poem For Depression All Around The World

Depression All Around The World

Last night while I was just sitting down and relaxing a thought just popped into my head. United States isn't the only country full of people who suffer with depression and mental illnesses. Sadly enough this is a condition that plagues the world. While I delved deeper and deeper into thinking about it an image popped up with in my thoughts an image so clear it felt so real.

A girl young and close to my age, which is in the twenties. She's screaming and crying, tears she drenched her face. It's night time and she's in a white night gown, offering an innocence but she herself feels like she's anything but. She's in pain, not physical but the worst kind of emotional pain. Then to top it off, the worst yet, she feels alone. All alone.

And here I am across the seas sitting on the couch, hearing the rain outside my window. A poem came into mind.


I can hear your cries, much like the banshee

Crossing through the night.

Shrill and deep

but left unheard by others.

Your pain, miserable and crimson

Like that of blood itself

Drips over and over

Like the rain outside my window.




Glass breaks and screams fill the air

Loud, hurtful screams.

Not much longer and I realize

That they are my own in answer to your cries.

Stumbling, falling to my knees

Bleeding my own rightful pain

I wish that you could see that far across the ocean sea

That I am here...

Another Banshee.

This one hit me powerfully. Banshee tales have always tweaked my interest, but being one? Keep writing.
