Ennui

Dead sobs fled from yawning graves,
Exiled spirits, banished into ennui.
Pang and spasm each aching lub-dub as
Raped heart in silence screams,
Entrenched within parched sighs.
Soul soaked in tears unshed
Stained in sorrow's sad dye.
Inky blood to burn each cell
Oozing puss of pain -
Naked, numbing pain...

You ARE alright aren't you? :p

Hi atom
you found the acronym - depression!
the poem was a sample for my creativ writng class.Yes I try to be cheerful always.The feelings described were nadir points recollected in tranquility.

Depression : well-expressed :)
'Exiled spirits , banished into ennui '
(The line was appealing...)
Have a good day , Ma'am. :)

Thanx reverie...
I had to choose between 'banished' and 'escaped'. The former sounde more punishing, while there was irony in the latter.

Why so much depression?

hi cm
as i said, I wrote the poem as a sample for my class. The feelings were taken from memories of depressing moments in the past.Also it was the anniversary of loved person who left me.Hence the choice of topic
