Now, Later, And Before This
Author: Shiloh


I want to cry.
Now, later, and before this.
It's a funny, weird feeling,
heavy inside of me,
like some kind of big block of something inside,
weighing in on my emotions.
I feel empty, lost, bewildered,
because I don't know what this is.
And it aches,
and I can't see it,
can't reach it,
can't understand it,
but I sure can feel it...
and I want to cry.

very good description

of what it feels like to be depressed. I work with people diagnosed w mental illness. We are beginning a poetry/writing workshop, would you mind if I used your poem? I'll be sure and give you credit.
