Depression is knocking on my door for a place to live

it’s december


depression keeps knocking


“your parents are dead

your brother is dead

friends are dying —

let me be your friend now”

depression tells me

“get ready for your

time of departure

it could be anytime”

i try not to let

depression come in


this year is different

depression keeps knocking

at my door

day and night

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
