Depression........sipping from the glass.

What more can be said about
this affliction of mind
Then to beg .....stop playing with these
emotions
You must understand ......she said...... I am
sad today and my mood is off
I'm just so depressed
And I recognized and I realized
some must play with this term
depression
You my dear aren't depressed you are
only emotional
You see..........depression is within ones
very soul
It lives....It grows like a vine
yes a vinyard
And throughout a lifetime
becomes a fine wine
And the truely depressed
are but drunkards
So while you may live for the
taste of ever a fine wine
You do not live and breath ......drink and
drivel from that vinyard
growing from within
like some out of
contol jungle
where tangled vines
are everywhere
stapping you down
holding you there
for an eternity

Voted up and awesome. Actually there is nothing like getting to the heart of the matter by slowly sipping a glass of really good wine.

I love when you compare depression to a growing vineyard and plant it inside the human soul.....

Vivid images flash in my mind at that moment.... the symbolism in the piece is poignant...

Depression indeed grows from within you.... it is you who plants it... waters it and tends it....

Great write

Nice bit of prose poetry. Doesn't get preachy, but gets the point across

So true...the vine that strongholds the soul...or the heart...or perhaps, both. I've been in that dark place...now, when it presents itself, I know there will be light again. Thanks for sharing...your thoughts, (experience?) on this subject. Rated up and interesting/awesome.
