depression tanka

twice damn you sorrow
depression holds my black heart
squeezing like a hug
taking all that is happy
and filling it with sweet doubt

curse you for this pain
bottomless flows of sadness
damn you bitterness
leave me alone for one day
find a new joy to smother

i already know
the depths of your loving hug relentless torment
your cold lips upon my cheek
let me be just for today
