Preface: I realise that whether any of the following constitutes 'poetry' is a matter of opinion. For my part, I consider it to be "introspective writing," which is closer to poetry than prose. My sister, on the other hand, considers it poetry, so I've gone with her definition. I wrote the following about four months ago, during my last battle with depression. It's actually, hopefully, going to form part of a collection I'll be publishing, called 26. If you fear you might be a trigger risk, I'd advise not reading this; for those in a dark place it may seem too hopeless to handle. With that said... Thanks for reading.
