About the Poem

This is a sampling of my so-called happy life. Depression is an evil monster that drowns you in a deep, swirling black hole. Writing on subjects in the soul of depression has a healing quality - it inspires me to seek out my darker emotions to convert them into positive energy

ghost into the shadows

her heart was dying for some form of

all seems balanced
the angel burns to

When I was in sixth grade, we all had to find a poem that we felt we connected to and read it outloud to the class. I happened across yours somehow one day at school, and something sparked. This has been my favorite poem for six years. I've finally found it again, and I hoped to get in contact with you. This is beautiful. You have no idea what this poem means to me. It has touched me deeply. Thank you.
