A Contradiction

A depressed optimist: 
A contradiction,
Yet ringing true,
For I see sunlight
And hear beautiful music,
Voices of loved ones,
Feeling happiness in my heart. 

Filling up with joy
Yet deflating, like
A week afterward. 

I apologize; my stream of consciousness is still dark. Maybe I’m addicted to writing about depression.  🙃

  1. I can so relate to this. I was also stuck with writing sad sap and not wanting to. Sometimes we need to let it out and other people need to hear that they’re not alone in their struggle.

    I love this piece – especially the deflated birthday balloon.
