Had you seen the movie ‘The fault in our stars’, reading the novel ‘An imperial affliction’ over and over would be described as a sign of depression. But over the past week I’ve been seeing this movie over and over till all my tears dry out and I get tired of pouring my heart out. And this was when I decided that I was depressed.
There is a fatal flaw with me or maybe with many people, when I am happy and elated with joy, I hardly notice the things that happen around me. This is probably because I don’t stand on earth but fly off with my dreams!
Since I was down on earth for the whole week, I decided to pen down my ‘off-the-track’ poem,
Sitting in the couch,
Staring at the T.V set,
Tears traced their path down my cheeks.
I cried once,
And that was a relief,
To kick off my strong shield.
I cried again,
But this time for myself,
How miserable my life has turned out to be!
Over time, the sad movie was only an excuse,
A mask to shelter from the outer world,
A shade I build for myself !
Every time I try to stand up,
I come crashing down harder,
But Dear Depression, I’m going to stand up anyway!
