There she is, at the spot where first we met,
In that off-the-wall haunt on the Internet.
She’s the distant desire that I can’t forget.
She’s my tear-stained pillow and my deep regret.
Depression is a washout lens,
Infusing hues with grey.
It dulls the best sensations
And enshrouds the brightest day ...
As ghostly as a graveyard
In the murky depths of night,
His eyes are like extinguished fires,
Long gone the gift of light ...
Blue Monday is here, the media says:
A day of despondence and gloom.
But really it’s only a marketing ploy
To get us to spend and consume ...
You only see me on good days.
On bad days I suffer alone.
When feeling half-dead,
I curl up in my bed
And I hide from the world on my own ...
