A sinking feeling
Shuts down speech and laughter.
Within, the pain unbearable causes shrieks and wails.
The solitude felt in a crowded room, even when so
called friends are near. The feeling of drowning in a
bottomless pit is there.
Endeavour to depart and it grips you.
You a prisoner, never to be let go; THAT IS DEPRESSION.
