my mind is screaming,
clawing through a thick gray mass of film
confining me,shutting me alone
in a dark and solemn lonely void.
i suffocate,trapped,
distanced from the air,the light,
from any feeling.
my insides are dead.
i hear the muffled sounds of life
and cry for them.

-----a poem written at the lowest and darkest point of my life.
Melissa

This sounds like grief to me. Very well done.

I don't think I've ever suffered from Clinical Depression, but this is the way I would picture it. Very descriptive!

It matters not how strait the gate;
How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
