Nothingness

Nothingness gently numbs my mind
As dull shades of dark
Cover me beneath blankets of endless night

I see light falling into the room
People smiling
Beneath a sunny sky

And sad clarity
Fills my mind with shaded truth
…They can’t see…

There is no place
No place for me
I finally can see
As the shade’s engulfing me

Nothingness

Artist's Description

A friend had once tried to capture this feeling with words and felt she had failed.
I thought I might try for her – and I failed too
and in a way i am very glad i did, because as i tried to draw closer to this feeling I suddenly new that one shouldn’t toy with something as dark and complex as depression. It’s not a game.
