Sadness

No mood or energy
to do anything.
Your mind is wandering.
Everything feels raw and
you’re in limbo.
Paralyzed by fear.

Surreal
But you have to go through the motions.
Immerse yourself in work
and carry on.
Be detached and carry on.

Try not to feel.
Try not to think.
Just keep going.

Easier said than done.
When sleep is the only comfort
but that evades you too.

    Hi – I hope you find a way out of this – you sound pretty depressed. Although I don’t know you I am sending you a virtual hug 🙂

      thanks Sarah…just the way i express myself best is in written form…kinda helps in the lowest of low moments. I am terrible when I speak….can’t express myself as well somehow.
