Depression is a washout lens,
Infusing hues with grey.
It dulls the best sensations
And enshrouds the brightest day ...
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 ...

My quest for perfect peace.
My selfish Soma coma;
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 ...
