"Drowning in Tears"

Updated on August 4, 2017

 As I read a book under a tree with tears in my eyes
You were constantly on my mind, my tears fell due to you.
Now they would not stop, they just continued all day through.
I realised "Black Bear"had returned to cause havoc once again
and make the tears return to destroy my torn and broken life.
As people asked what made me cry, I replied and said "I'm fine"
I really wasn't fine,I felt instead of blood inside my heart,
I was drowning from the tears you caused when you broke my heart.
I was once told that a happy heart is good medicine to have.
God fills me with hope to find peace and joy in my life and
when I feel depressed, dismayed and unnerved during the day
I know that he hears my cries when I pray when I feel down
When my eyes are clear to see and my frustrations are released
sometimes it seems like forever before I see the light of day.
Then I'd realised that there is a way I finally could be saved,
I'd learn to face my fears in life,not be afraid,or run away.

Depression can enter our lives and linger on for years to come
I had no idea at all what to do when the "Black Bear" came to me.
I heard it in the morning and before I went to bed at night and
I was told not to dwell on "why", it leads to bitterness and pain.
Whatever grief you are living with,believe me you're not alone.
You may grieve for the loss of your health,or lose someone near to you
I found out that even though people drown in water, they can also feel
like they are drowning when their heart fills with their tears as well.

      Dear Perfectperception,

      Thank you so much for such lovely words about my poem. I hope it is inspirational for those who are affected by depression. I know how bad that it can make you feel.

      I am hoping by writing this that people going through something similar can see that help is available for them. BB

      Inspiring writing. It is really difficult not to drown in tears but try to keep love in your heart and live in wonderment each moment.
